History of Mount Holyoke College and Area
History of Williston Memorial Library
The Williston Memorial Library was built in 1905. The Library Court is modeled after the Medici Library in Florence, Italy. A sixteenth-century wellhead standing at the center of the court has a Latin inscription chiseled into one of its panels, which when translated reads, "You who are thirsty, come and drink freely." This inscription is the library's motto.
