Van Pelt at 50
On exhibit August 27, 2012 - February 24, 2013
October 22, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Charles Patterson Van Pelt Library. The Dietrich wing was added in 1966. Today, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library is still the central Penn library, and ongoing renovations have made it a center of learning, research, and teaching. To celebrate the occasion, this small exhibition features photographs of the building's construction, dedication, and early interior.
