Charles Trumbull Hayden Library opened in 1966 as the first building dedicated to library holdings and research service. The collections supported all the university academic programs. When the 205,000 square feet of space for the collections and the student study spaces reached its limit, reading rooms opened in other colleges, which eventually became five additional library branches on the main campus.
