Building Information

Here you will find information about study rooms, meeting rooms, and the history of Collins Library.

The Collins Memorial Library was named for former trustee of the University of Puget Sound, Everell S. Collins. Support from the Collins Family continues today with the most recent gift of furniture from Lee Diane Collins Vest ’70, granddaughter of Everell S. Collins. Many of the tables and chairs throughout this building were custom built for the library from Collins Lumber.

Mr. Everell S. Collins was a very dear friend of the University of Puget Sound for many years and it is a fitting tribute that the academic heart of the University, the library, should be named in his memory.
