Michener Library Tour: Home

An online tour of the Michener Library



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.
