Using a D'Addario cement mixer, workers are laying the foundations for the steps of the library.
Groundbreaking for a new library building began in 1967. With construction completed, the library was open to students in September 1968. The library was officially named the Nyselius Library in 1971 in honor of benefactors Gustav and Dagmar Nyselius. Image date is approximate.
