Throwback Thursday: Silence Required

Shhhh…it’s #ThrowbackThursday!

This week, we have a 5″ x 3″ card explaining Whitin Library’s policy regarding noise in its reading rooms and corridors. Doane College built Whitin Library in 1894. It served as the campus library until 1970, when the college constructed a new library. John N. Bennett served as president of Doane College from 1919-1925, while Nora Hjelm term as librarian lasted from 1918 to 1925.

This image is published and owned by Doane University Library. Doane University Library is home to a vast archival collection containing a variety of items related to the history of Doane University. Founded by Thomas Doane in 1872, Doane College became Doane University in May 2016 and is the oldest private liberal arts and sciences college/university in Nebraska. Featured in this collection are historical images of buildings, people and activities dating back to the founding of the school.
