Historical Note

An academic library has existed at Elon since the school was founded in 1889. The library has been located in four different buildings on campus, three of which are still standing today. The first library was located in the Old Main Administration building and after the building burned in January of 1923, the library was then housed in Carlton building, from 1923/1924 until McEwen Library opened in 1968. The Carol Grotnes Belk Library opened in January of 2000 and the library moved from McEwen Library to the newly constructed Belk Library that year, and remains there today.
