Our Library STATs

If you stacked up all the books in the library they would be 505 feet tall. That’s taller than the Great Pyramid (450 feet) but shorter than the Washington Monument (555.5 feet). If all the pages in all the books in the library were laid end to end it would be 533,410 feet, which is 0.4057 % of the circumference of the Earth and a 1.68 hour drive. If you were to pack up and move all the books in the library, they would fill 206.2 U-Haul book boxes. Imagine carting all those books of the college with you. Also imagine all the amazing information held in the magnitude of books that we have here at the library. Could your bedside table hold the Great Pyramid?
