JOHN W. LONG

LIBRARY

A LOOK BACK TO SEE

FORWARD

In many ways, the John W. Long Library

was the first true library on campus,

allowing Lycoming’s collection to grow to a

size more comparable to that of other four-

year colleges — a distinction the institution

had only recently received.

Construction began on the building on May

7, 1950, and was completed the following

year. The library was finished and open

to students by September of 1951, with a

dedication ceremony during Homecoming

weekend.

The placement of the structure helped to

cement into place what is today known as

the Fultz Quadrangle — an iconic space on

campus, cherished by alumni and current

students alike.

The building was used as a library for only

a short time before the Academic Center

opened in 1968, providing a new home for

the library, at which time, Long Hall was

converted into an administrative building.

Today Long Hall houses the offices of the

president, provost, dean, financial aid,

human resources and college advancement.
