Central lighting
After two years of excavating, pounding, drilling, and building, the east light court of Widener Library has been transformed into a luminous new reading room. Made possible through the generosity of Charles G. Phillips ’70 and his wife Candace, the Phillips Reading Room is a controlled room for the use of noncirculating materials that are requested from the Harvard Depository or borrowed through interlibrary loan, and for materials paged from the stacks for authorized library visitors.
