Photographed in 1995 and February 2010.

 

The original library, with its distinctive Wright design, now serves as a lecture hall and home of the visitors center. Some websites show a different building, the currently library named after Roux as well (see photos at bottom of this page). This, however, is the library Wright designed. Early planning is underway to build a new visitors center, employing one of the Wright designs that was not constructed on campus.

 

When the new library was constructed in 1968, this building was renamed the Thad Buckner Building. The round room was renamed the William H. Hollis Exhibition & Seminar Room. It is this room which serves as the visitor center.

 

The visitor center displays furniture and some construction tools from the original construction of the campus. It also has a small gift shop, and guided tours can be booked there.

This is the building some websites show as the Wright-designed library, but it is not.

This photo is from 1995, and shows the Water Dome area as it existed at that time.
