Buhl Library is open for GCC faculty, staff and students to browse our collections, study and borrow materials. Our number one priority is to provide services and space to support you academically this semester while keeping our campus community safe. The changes in services and operations which are detailed below are necessary in order to follow Grove City College's Return to Campus Health and Safety plan. This information may be updated or changed at any time to reflect new information or guidelines set forth by the college regarding that plan.

Meet your Library Staff


Each month we will feature a Q&A with a Buhl permanent staff member or student from the library.

 Meet Gretchen Maxeiner 


How long have you worked at Buhl Library?

  • 2 Years

Tell us a little about your educational background and work at GCC

  • I hold a BA in Latin from Bryn Mawr College and graduate degrees (MA in Latin and MS in Library and Information Science) from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.  
  • Before coming to GCC, I worked for 20 years in college and research libraries large and small in Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Illinois and overseas.
  • You will sometimes see me at the reference desk, but most often I am back in the offices behind carts of new books, DVDS and electronic resources (those would be on "virtual carts"!), compiling data on them for the library catalog so that you will easily be able to find the resources when you search in Henry or Discovery. 

Name 2 things that people might not know about you:

1. I lived and worked for several years at an archaeological research center in Athens, Greece and have visited most of the key ancient sites in the country. I miss Greek food.

2. I commute from Cranberry Township to Grove City every day. The library's audiobook collection really helps the drive go by quickly!
