Crounse Hall

Grace Doherty Library

The fundamental mission of the Grace Doherty Library is to provide members of the academic community with access to resources and services that support the current and anticipated instructional, research, and service programs of Centre College. Further, in order to promote critical thinking and life-long learning, the Library will provide instruction on the effective use of Library resources and other information sources.

With a capacity for 350,000 volumes, comfortable seating for 350, wireless technology, and two computer areas, the library provides students and faculty with a full range of library services in a beautiful, unique environment.

In 2020, the main floor of the library was remodeled to make room for the Centre Learning Commons and an Einstein Brothers Bagel shop. The Learning Commons expands and synchronizes the wide array of campus services that help all Centre students achieve academic success.
