Over the summer, we were presented with a large task: to move the library collections to a brand new building. This past week, we celebrated the opening of the library which now resides in the Goucher Athenaeum. The grand opening also served as the kick-off for the 125th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of Goucher College.

We begin moving the books from the Julia Rogers Library to the Athenaeum.
