The Neilson Library evolved dramatically over its 112 years, culminating with Maya Lin’s transcendant new design. Today, as always, it is Smith’s vital center, the connection between north and south campus and the intellectual crossroads for the college community and campus visitors. This new exhibit celebrates the library’s rich architectural history and its expanding role as it responds to the needs of today’s Smith student.
