A Little History
St. Norbert College’s first library was a small room on the first floor of Main Hall and contained books donated by students. In 1924, a room of Boyle Hall became the main library until 1959, when the library was moved to Boyle’s third and fourth floors. In 1977, the Todd Wehr Library was established through the remodeling of an existing campus dormitory. In 2009, the Miriam B. & James J. Mulva Library opened its doors.
The Miriam B. & James J. Mulva Library is committed to enriching the academic endeavors of the St. Norbert College community. The library will:
