Building History
Student moves books to new library in 1979

The original library on the Crookston campus of the University of Minnesota was located within the Kiehle Building. Built in 1910, the Kiehle Building has been remodeled several times, and the library's footprint increased with each renovation. Eventually, Kiehle Annex was built in 1972 to house the library and media services. When it was deemed that this solution was not enough, the present building was constructed. Groundbreaking for the current library was in August 1978, and the dedication was held in May 1980. During the 2001 renovation of Kiehle Building, a technology room was added to the library. This room now houses back issues of print journals as well as a collection of children's books.
