Brigham Young Academy. Library



  • Existence: 1892 - 1903

Administrative History

The Library (1892-1903) provided book collections and study space for students at Brigham Young Academy.

While Brigham Young Academy had included book collection since its beginnings, held in Karl G. Maeser's desk, these materials were destroyed in the Academy fire of 1884. It was not until the opening of the Academy Building (Education Building) in 1892 that a dedicated space was available and the library was established as an organizational unit. The library included a general collection, as well as separate, subject-based collections donated by the Academy's graduating classes.
