Bound Periodicals to be Shelved in Moravian’s Reeves Library

Reeve's Library(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Moravian College recently received a grant of $86,227 from the Reeves Foundation of Dover, Ohio. The major part of the grant will fund the second in a three-step approach to purchasing and installing compact shelving in the library’s bound periodicals area. This approach to shelving was a key component in planning for the expansion of the library in the early 1990’s.

The compact shelving will be used for the storage of bound periodicals in all ten of their current academic library projects. Moravian’s compact shelving will be purchased from J.P. Jay Associates, Inc. in Allentown, and will be installed in July.

The second part of the grant will be used to replace a large number of chairs in use since the original building was constructed in 1968. These will be supplied by Brodart in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Reeves Library provides both print and electronic information and services to Moravian College’s and Moravian Theological Seminary’s students, faculty, and staff as well as to visiting scholars and a number of designated local users.

The Reeves Library was dedicated in 1967 to the memory of Jeremiah E. Reeves and Jane Rees Reeves, through an extraordinary gift from their grandchildren, Margaret, June, Helen F. and Samuel J. Reeves. In 1988, a gift of $1,000,000 from the Reeves Foundation allowed Moravian to complete a substantial addition to the library that nearly doubled the library’s capacity.
