The Hong Kierkegaard Library
HKL Move-In Day
The Hong Kierkegaard Library moves into Steensland, its new home on the “Hill.” The structure, built in 1902, was the first library on campus and is nestled between Old Main and Holland Hall, home to the Religion and Philosophy Departments.
HKL Open House in Steensland Hall
