Memorial Library – Celebrating 90 Years of Service
During the early days of the Berry Schools, libraries were located in rooms in various buildings. With the financial support provided by Mr. Walter and Mrs. Kate Macy Ladd, Martha Berry’s dream of a library building for the Berry Schools came to fruition in October 1926. The Memorial Library has been renovated and expanded over the decades and continues to grow to meet the ever-changing needs of the Berry community. Over the years, the Memorial Library has been an educational and social center on campus and an essential part of the Berry College environment.
