Throwback Thursday: General Library

It’s another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

We’re celebrating #SchoolLibraryMonth by featuring some of the school libraries you can find on the Nebraska Memories archive! This week, we have a black and white glass lantern slide of the General Library at Nebraska Wesleyan University. The General Library contained approximately 12,000 volumes, current magazines, and newspapers. It could seat about 120 people and served as a study room for all University departments.

This image is published and owned by Nebraska Wesleyan University. This collection holds several thousand photographs and various media.

If you like history, check out the Nebraska Memories archive for more materials!

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission.
