Mundane Mondays: Williams Library, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ

Welcome back to Mundane Mondays! Today’s entry was submitted by Gabriella A. This is the Samuel C. Williams Library at Stevens Institute of Technology, a private university in Hoboken. The library was built in 1969 and named in honor of Samuel Williams, a longtime faculty member who died the year before. The building was designed by the noted architecture firm of Perkins and Will.

The sculpture hanging above the entrance is Moon & Stars by Mary Callery, originally commissioned for the lobby of 1251 Sixth Avenue in Rockefeller Center (although it’s unclear if it was ever installed there). The sculpture on the ground is Heaven & Hell. There is also an Alexander Calder mobile on the second floor of the library. Calder attended Stevens and graduated in 1919.
