Word from Willet: Library News



Share your stories

We want to hear your Wesleyan stories! Willet Library has been awarded a NetVUE Awards Program Development Grant from The Council of Independent Colleges that supports the development of a program that will tell Wesleyan’s history through stories, archival objects, and documents.


Grant directors Kristi Peavy, director for Willet Library, and Willet Library Archivist Virginia Blake, are working with Dr. Brandi Simpson-Miller, visiting assistant professor of history, on this project. They are seeking narrators for oral histories which will be included in the College’s digital archive collection. These stories will complement the newly renovated archive and storage space in Willet Library. Start reminiscing, collect your thoughts, and watch for more information on how to share your story in the next few months.


Renovation of Willet Library is complete

Thanks to the immense generosity of many donors, the renovation of Willet Library is now complete. We are proud to offer a redesigned modern library that benefits not only the Wesleyan community, especially the students, but also alumnae and the entire Macon community.

All three floors feature silent study areas and are zoned with noise levels that are appropriate for the purpose. Due to housing the academic resource center and many collaborative work areas, the first floor is zoned as collaborative and allows/permits conversational noise. The second floor, zoned as quiet, houses classrooms and group study areas that allow for more focused but still collaborative study. The third floor houses the majority of our collection, including most of our circulating collection, and features archival storage, exhibit and work areas, quiet study areas, and two study rooms. It is zoned as silent.

Visitors are welcome to use the vast resources available at Willet Library during library hours: Monday - Thursday 8am-10pm; Friday 8am-5pm; Saturday Closed; Sunday 4pm-9pm (contingent upon staffing).

Please contact the library staff at (478) 757-5200 or wlibrary@wesleyancollege.edu
