Hiram College Library

Hiram College Library has provided a welcoming, comfortable, and intellectually stimulating environment for many generations of students, faculty, staff and community members.

It is interesting to note that for its first 50 years, Hiram College did not even have a library.

OhioLINK spoke with the library director to find out more about the rich history and services provided by the Hiram College Library.

What are your top three points of pride in your library?

First and foremost, we are proud of our hard working staff, including our student workers, that help to make the library experience a great one.

We are also proud of our beautiful building. It provides study spaces, computers, and collaboration rooms to ensure that students and faculty can work productively in the library.

Finally, we are also thankful to the many donors who support the library via our Friends of the Library group. Founded in 1984, the Friends of the library has raised nearly $1 million to purchase books, films, technology, furniture, and much more.

 

What's the most popular spot in your library for students and patrons?

There are two spots that are popular. One is the 8 study rooms we have. The other is the "clock tower" where you can see the mechanism that runs the clock that is on top of the library building.

How long have you been a member of OhioLINK?

Since 1997.
