Oliver Wendell Holmes Library 1988 Addition Interior


Phillips Academy




In returning to the brick as an exterior design feature the library's new wing replaced the steel and glass of the Copley Wing. The stacks went from the military olive drab of its original paint to royal blue of the school's colors. The main door went from the Great Lawn side to the Flagstaff Quad side. With it went the circulation desk. Great changes had been made, not the least of which a the on-line card catalog. We had returned to our architectural past, but moved forward into the computer age.
This interior view is the second floor on the Great Quad side lookin up at what was to be a Faculty Mezzanine. It is currently the Text Exchange, but will soon be a store selling recycled items.
