One of Bucks County’s most reputable colleges has shared a blast from their past, showing how their library looked decades ago.

Bucks County Community College opened its first and main campus in Newtown back in 1964. For almost six decades, the local community college has played an important role in the education of Bucks County residents of all ages.

The Newtown campus’ library recently shared an image that shows what it looked like back in 1976.

“This is the third floor of the library before the mezzanine was added,” the library wrote next to the image they shared on Facebook.

Since then, the library, along with the campus, has seen a variety of updates made to help improve the college’s looks and the quality of education for all students and staff. The college also has campuses in Perkasie and Bristol.

“The mission of the Library is to provide the information services and resources required to meet the needs of Bucks County Community College students and the community, to enrich their lives, advance their careers, and enable them to become lifelong learners and more responsible citizens.”
