Dr. Laverne Haselwood dedicated much of his life to education. His professional career took him from work as a librarian to a position as a professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), serving as a councilor for the American Library Association, as president of the Nebraska Library Association and on the Board of Trustees at York College, to name only a few of his many accomplishments. His Christian faith led him to serve at the Southwest Church of Christ for decades, both as an elder and as the curator of our library, touching numerous lives and earning the love and respect of hundreds of church members.
Dedicated on December 5, 2021, the Dr. Laverne Haselwood Library contains many wonderful resources to assist with individual study and teaching for classes and the congregation. Verne spent countless hours administering, promoting, classifying, cataloging, and processing the materials in our library. Please honor his memory by utilizing these resources to enrich your personal study and to further the faith of others through teaching.
