Biographical / Historical
The Seton Junior League was founded in 1940 by young women fond of the idea of service in hopes of one day becoming part of the Bayley-Seton League. The league took part in many service projects, particularly at the Seton Hall College library. The members of the group volunteered at the circulation desk and stack areas. The Seton Junior League made a large donation of all the desk furniture and equipment in the circulation area of McLaughlin Library when it was built. Seton Library week, special exhibitions, and lectures were all sponsored by the Seton Junior League. When the anticipated merge with the Bayley-Seton League did not happen, the Seton Junior League eventually faded out of existence.
