NELLE KRISE was a professor of English at West Liberty. She was fond of the origins of the written word, and she often taught that you only have what you give away. Upon her passing, Krise donated her rare book collection and materials. THE NELLE KRISE RARE BOOK ROOM was established to house her generous donation.
While the relics are under protection of lock and key, the room is, in fact, open to the public. Students who are interested in viewing these materials can contact the librarian at the reference desk Monday through Friday, 8:00 – 4:00.
