Founded in 1969, the Browne Popular Culture Library occupies the entire fourth floor of the Jerome Library and contains a mind-boggling collection of items related to American popular culture from the late 1800s through today.
But did you know it’s also a delightful place to spend a day studying? We have comfy couches with plenty of power outlets, tables for small group studying, and a chance to listen in on our staff arguing hot topics like the merits of Die Hard as a Christmas movie (it totally is!).
Need a break from studying? Check our catalog for your favorite superhero and spend some time with classic comic books. You could also read a romance novel, or even some classic Star Trek fan fiction. We’ve also got a wide selection of DVDs that you can check out with your BGSU ID- from TV shows and documentaries to animation and Hollywood hits.
The Browne Popular Culture Library is one of the hidden gems of BGSU’s campus. Come spend an hour or two among some of the coolest stuff around. And maybe get some work done while you’re at it. We’re open 8am-9pm Monday and Tuesday, 8am-5pm Wednesday-Friday, and 5pm-9pm Sundays. See you soon!
