This photo shows the library of 100 years ago. It was in the center section of the old Normal School building, which stood where Hartwell Hall is today. The library occupied a similar spot in Hartwell Hall for a number of years. In the early 1960s the first building designed solely for a library was built; no, not the Drake of today though! It was “Drake I,” which today is Rakov, on Kenyon Street. Today’s Drake Library opened in 1975.
