Mandelle Library was not the first building constructed during the 1920s and 1930s, when many of the College's current buildings were constructed, but it set the tone for all buildings later erected on the campus. Located on Academy St. hill, the Library helped set the boundaries for the current quadrangle, which is the center of activity and learning at Kalamazoo College. It was the first building designed by Aymar Embury II, who went on to design four other buildings at the College.
