      The library was in 00 from after the MOSH moved his office until March 1962.
      The Secretary logs of March 1962 the Blacker ExCom met to discuss a new Blacker Library. The proposal was to convert room 17. It was approved pending a Hovse vote. The Hovse voted to approve 17 as a Library in May 1962.
      Feb 1964 an ExCom meeting discussed the potential of expanding the library into 19. The topic was also discussed in a May 1964 ExComm meeting. The MOSH was paying for the contruction and it was hoped that the expanded Library would be completed by Rotation 1964.
