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 one was a little hard to identify. It is the library basement on the east side of the building looking south.The faculty carrels are not built, nor are the sheves that will hold the microform viewers.
