History of Carnegie Library, 1908 - 2008


This exhibit was initially created in 2008 to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Carnegie Library building of Oberlin College. Many people contributed to the making of this exhibit, including Elizabeth Rumics, Ed Vermue, Ray English, Anna Arays, Marsha Bansberg, Xi Chen, and John Seyfried.  We would like to especially thank the Oberlin College Archives and the Oberlin Public Library for permission to reproduce images from their collections.
