1922 Rudolf Memorial Library, Capital University, Columbus OH


The Rudolf Library was dedicated in June 1915 and was an achievement of President Otto Mees (1912 -1946). “Due to lack of shelf space, lack of reading rooms, and cramped and inadequate offices for the staff” a new library, The Blackmore Library, was built where Recitation Hall once stood. The Blackmore Library opened after Thanksgiving vacation in 1970. The Rudolf Library is now the Kerns Religious Life Center.
