1877

The College starts a “One Book for the Library” drive. 3,600 Congregational ministers across the country are each asked to donate one book, or $2, which is the average cost of a good book at the time. This is followed by other book-donation drives that continue on into the 20th Century, including the “Book-A-Year-Club.”
