The following few photos recall the FPLC Library of the 1970s and early 1980s.  Some of you may remember the beautiful decor.  The entrance photos you see below were taken when the main entrance to the library was on the ground floor.  You would enter the library through the door that opens onto the Jury Box area (near the hallway with the lockers).  It is an Emergency Exit now and otherwise not used.
