Another (Homecoming) Viewpoint

View of Davis Library's Grounds around 3 PM Friday 11.15.13

Homecoming Weekend is here at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College and as you can see in the photo above the folks from Allen Hall—not too far from Davis Library—have been busy readying their float for this afternoon’s parade. (See photo below.)

Since year’s Homecoming theme is “Decade of Dreams,” which reflects both the institution’s long history and future plans, we’re also featuring a few pictures from Davis Library’s early days.  The building was dedicated January 16, 1966.

Rio Grande College itself was founded in 1876.  During the 1970s the community college was added and by the late 1980s the curriculum and campus was expanded to make the school an officially accredited university.

Then, a few details on Jeanette Albiez Davis, the library’s namesake, may also be found at:
