A black and white image of four African American men and an African American woman studying quietly in Harrison Rhodes Hall (former library). The woman can be seen seated at a table at the right of the image, book in hand. On the wall behind her are bookshelves lined with books. A doorway can be seen leading outside. Hanging above the bookshelf on the far wall is a portrait of George Washington. At the left of the image there is a table with magazine racks on top. Some of the titles of the magazines are as follows: "Abbott's," "Outlook," "Nursing," "Wee Wisdom," and "The World Tomorrow." At the lower left corner of the image is a dictionary which has been opened. On the back of the photograph is a note that reads, "Bethune-Cookman has outgrown its library facilities." The photographer of the image is unknown.
