Michener Library, the main library, was named after James A. Michener. Mr. Michener attended Colorado State College of Education, now the University of Northern Colorado, from 1936-1937. He was a Social Science educator at the Training School and at the College from 1936-1941. He conceived the idea for his novel Centennial during his stay in Greeley.
Michener Library is the third site for the main library at UNC. The first location was a single room in Cranford Hall (now gone), the second was Carter Hall; in 1971 the Library moved into the present building on west campus.
The Michener Library collection includes approximately 1.5 million items in book, periodical, government document, audio-visual and microform formats.
