George B. Stevenson Library at Lock Haven

On April 24, 1970, the $2 million dollar, newly-constructed library was dedicated and named for former State Senator George Bond Stevenson (1938-1962) who was also a 1906 graduate of the Central State Normal School, which later became Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania.  The George B. Stevenson Library provides an array of information services and resources to support the academic and research needs of the students, faculty and staff at the Lock Haven campus, as well as community patrons.

Available in the library are over 330,000 volumes of print books, maps, government documents, and curriculum-based educational resources for the elementary school.  In addition, the library provides more than 650,000 electronic books; more than 120,000 journals, magazines, and newspapers in both electronic and print format; and nearly 690,000 microforms, 12,000 DVD's and music CD's, and 125 online databases.

Additionally, the Stephanie A. Wollock Learning Commons is located on the second floor of the Library. This area includes Media Services which loans laptops, digital cameras with tripods, and graphic calculators.  Patrons can also have poster projects printed and laminated at Media Services.  The Betty B. Schantz Tutorial Center, the Writing Center, and the Robert and Helen Burgess Terrill University Archive are also located in the Stephanie A. Wollock Learning Commons on the second floor.
