Project Description

Located in the heart of today’s Central Campus, the Sterling Memorial Library is one of Yale’s most prominent buildings, as well as being the largest of all the Yale libraries. Completed in 1930, it was designed by architect James Gamble Rogers and later named for its benefactor, John William Sterling.

It currently houses approximately 4 million volumes on 16 floors of book stacks. It was built in the Collegiate Gothic style, resembling a European Gothic cathedral, with its 60-foot ceiling, cloisters, clerestory windows, side chapels, and a circulation desk altar.

Grand Light was selected to restore Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library Manuscripts & Archives historic interior lighting fixtures. This project included the removal and pickup of large bronze pendant lights and ceiling mounts, and over 200 glass shades.
