Since its unassuming beginnings, the library has grown to meet the changing needs of the University. The physical building has gradually expanded from its 160 square foot entryway to our current 224,000 square foot building. Over the years, the collection has grown in size and breadth to accommodate the transition from a teacher education institution into a multipurpose university with degree programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. To adjust to student demands, the Library’s hours of service have extended to include weekends and evenings.
