Weeks-Townsend Memorial Library


Since 1879, Union College has compiled a history that reflects its uncompromising commitment to excellence. Awards have been won by faculty, staff, and students, concerts and plays have been performed by talented artists within its halls, and new buildings have been dedicated to the ongoing college mission.

As the milestones that mark Union's proud heritage come and go, the records of those treasured moments are collected in the library Archives. Here you can peruse the college's governing documents, browse college catalogs and yearbooks, and relive memories of the honored speakers who have participated in the distinguished Wilson-Gross and Staley Lectures.

The Archives preserve Union's proud legacy as an institution of higher learning and a vital component of life in the Barbourville community.
