The B.L. Fisher Library celebrates its 50th anniversary on October 10. The library invites faculty and staff to a cookie and punch reception in the Bergie Café from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. and all students to a popcorn-palooza on the evening of October 10.
“We are very thankful for the gift from Mr. Bergie Lee Fisher who left a legacy to the Seminary in his will,” Dr. Timothy Tennent, President of Asbury Theological Seminary, said. “Mr. Fisher’s generosity allowed us to construct the library that students enjoy today. We gratefully celebrate not only God’s blessings, but also Mr. Fisher’s gift on the library’s 50th anniversary.”
The B.L. Fisher Library is said to be the first major building project during President Stanger’s tenure. Prior to October 1967, the library was housed in a variety of places, including the basements of Talbott Hall and Alumni Hall and the lower level of the Administration building.
During the month of October, the library will showcase displays celebrating their history, along with a video documentary.
