Overview Looking Northeast

The library was designed by the Madison architectural firm of Claude & Starck. Its design is of the Prairie School of Architecture. Both Louis W. Claude (1868-1951) and Edward F. Starck (1868-1947) worked for some very influential architects before entering into partnership in Madison. They designed numerous institutional buildings, among them are several libraries that share similar designs.
