Adolph and Ella Frankenthal, in whose honor this library reading room is dedicated were immigrants, refugees from Nazi Germany, who found their desire for freedom and love of work in America. Their memorial is a triumph for liberty and knowledge and a defeat for obstruction of learning and dictatorships- a reading room, a "book center" were wisdom may be reserved. It is fitting, perhaps, that Adolf and Ella Frankenthal, who fled Nazi book-burnings and racial persecution, will be honored in a center of learning.
