Brief History of the Library

The Sandor Teszler Library was built in 1969 and dedicated in 1971 in honor of Sandor Teszler, a native of Hungary, a Holocaust survivor, and a local textile executive.  The new library replaced a much smaller library building on campus, Daniel Hall.  Use of the library grew quickly after the three-story, 43,000 square foot building opened.  The library won an award of merit from the South Carolina chapter of the American Institute of Architects.  In the decades since the library’s construction, the collections have continued to grow and diversify, and the building continues to evolve to meet student and faculty needs. A massive renovation project of three phases in 2019-2020 brought exciting new changes to the library.
