Study by the fire in Mr. Lorimer’s personal library
People are often amazed to discover that if they venture all the way up to the 4th floor of Henderson Library, then they’ll find a study area like no other in the building. With chairs and tables surrounding a cozy fireplace, we invite you to make yourself at home in Mr. George Burford Lorimer’s personal library. The Lorimer Collection is actually so large that not all of it could fit in the Lorimer Reading Room, so you’ll find some of his books in the ARC (Automated Retrieval Collection; video here). But we’ve arranged some of the most interesting ones here for your browsing pleasure, and they can also be checked out. For more details on how Mr. Lorimer’s personal library came to your library, here’s the scoop.
