Library Problems
Are Explained
Mrs. Lucy H. Rradshaw,
I^ibrarian, made the following
statement concerning the open
ing of the C. 0. O'Kelly Library:
“The college library will move
into the C. G. O’Kelly Library
Building as soon as the steel
shelving is delivered and install
ed by the Estey Corporation of
Red Rank, New Jersey. This
shelving will house the general
book collection on the basement
level of the new building.
“The contracted delivery date
was August, 1967. This unfor
tunate delay of delivery has
caused the college family con
siderable hardships.”
However, Mrs. Bradshaw said,
the Estey Corporation was
scheduled to ship the steel
shelves January 22. This means
the new library will be open as
soon as the shelves arrive and
are installed.
The library will be open dur
ing the second semester.
