About the Building

Opened in 1969, the 67,000 square foot 3-story building has stack capacity of 190,000 volumes. It was named in honor of the benefactor Frank E. Gannett, founder of the Gannett media corporation.

Study and research accommodations for nearly 400 patrons are provided, with individual carrels and table seating (including lounge/reading areas), five enclosed study spaces, and a Learning Commons area on the first floor.

The Library has more than 75 computer workstations and a collection of circulating laptops with full network access by username log-in.
