Renne Library

Along with an extensive book collection, Renne Library contains computer labs for student use as well as coffee available from The Brewed Awakening. The Special Collections on the second floor holds documents and memorabilia from the career of Montana’s distinguished United States Senator, Burton K. Wheeler, 1923-47. The room also contains the Yellowstone National Park Collection. Visitors are welcome to view these collections Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

First constructed in 1949, a large addition was built in 1961 to accommodate more than half a million volumes. The name honors MSU’s sixth president, Roland Renne, 1943-64.
