Title

Mildred Beatty Smith, Address at the Dedication of University Library, 1967

Description

Mildred Beatty Smith served on the Eastern Michigan University Board of Regents for 10 years before leaving to serve as Director of Elementary Education in the Flint public schools. In this dedicatory address for the new University Library, Smith remarks that the strength of libraries is not in the buildings themselves, but rather in the ideas that the buildings contain. When students begin to value libraries for this reason, Smith says, that will be the real return on the investment.
