Question #1647 posted on 11/24/2003 midnight

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I've noticed that the stairs going from the third to fourth floor of the Harold B. Lee Library are dented in. Is it from lots of students walking on them, or did some giant come along and crush the stairs inward?

- Jeannette

A: Dear Jeannette,

The library has been around for a really long time. As far as I can tell since the 20's, although the form has changed many times in the intervening years. The stairs are worn from much usage by students over the years, though I'm sure they've seen a giant or two as well. Also check the archives for this question: Board Question #781
