The library was built along with the
rest of the main campus here in Brighton. Ground-breaking took place on
June 11, 1965 with a slated completion date of September 1967.
Construction problems delayed the “official” opening of the campus until
September of 1968. The library was up and running at that time.
There are three floors open to the college community that total 51,843
square feet. That includes EVERYTHING within the exterior walls. An
additional floor (beneath the main floor) consists of approximately 2200
square feet and is not open to the public. This area is devoted to
storage and the College Archives preservation lab.
The library is officially known as the Leroy V. Good Library and is
named after our first president. He died on September 14, 1972 while
still holding the office of president. The dedication of the library, in
his honor, took place on May 18, 1973.
