Long before it was renamed and expanded, Magill Library got its start as Alumni Hall. Originally proposed by the Haverford College Alumni Association as a place to hold meetings, the building took on a dual purpose when the Board of Managers suggested that a portion of the hall be used to accommodate the College’s library, which was then bursting out of a second story room in Founders Hall.
Come back tomorrow to see Magill Library at Haverford “Now”.
