"WAS THIS LIBRARY
EVER A CHURCH?"

One of the most frequently asked questions regarding the Albright Memorial Library is, "Was this library ever a church?" This question usually arises because of both the architecture of the building itself and, of course, the stained-glass windows that decorate the walls of the Albright.

What you may not know about is the images and designs in the stained-glass windows throughout the building represent the various crests found on the bindings of books throughout history, many designed for royalty such as Elizabeth I.

We have brochures at the Reference Desk that offer you the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of the magnificent stained-glass windows that adorn the Albright Memorial Library building.

Feel free to ask at the Reference Desk for a "Stained Glass Windows Tour" brochure.
