Celebrating 50 years of the Jerome Library

In 2017, Wm. T. Jerome Library turns 50 years old. In those 50 years, the campus has grown from 9,000 students to over 19,000 students. The library, which had 400,000 books in 1967, now has over seven million books and access to unending amounts of electronic information. With our 50th anniversary approaching, we invite you to help us celebrate this milestone and share our legacy with the community.
