With over 43,000 volumes, an online catalog, full wireless connectivity and 34 computer work stations, Geier Library is an oasis for study, research and reading. The sunlit, two-level building was built in 1950 as a gymnasium with money donated by longtime trustee Frederick V. Geier, and was renovated thanks to his son, the late James A.D. Geier '44C, also a trustee.
Professional librarians are available to help students find information, suggest reading materials and to manage the collection. Requests for new acquisitions and interlibrary loan materials are welcome.
