In 1968, all the books were moved from Canisius and Xavier Halls to the new library building. It featured a smoking area, two typing rooms, and the school's first full-time reference librarian. In 1971, the library was named Nyselius Library in honor of benefactors Gustav and Dagmar Nyselius. Image date is approximate.
