Education Library History
The Education Library is located in Norman Hall. A collection of educational methods books was started in 1939 in one room of the P.K. Yonge Laboratory School. These materials formed the nucleus of the collection which became the Education Library in 1950. The present facility opened January 2, 1980.
In 1996, the Education Library was given a significant gift in the Haskel Hess Endowment fund. This fund will help support the library in bringing new technology and materials to the College of Education students in the future.
