Plaques with a centenary message in three languages, English, isiXhosa and Afrikaans were installed on an outside wall of the library in 2018, Stellenbosch University’s centenary year. The message reads:

“In its 2018 Centenary Year, SU celebrates its successes and achievements. We also acknowledge, with deep regret, our role in the injustices of our country’s past. SU commits itself to the ideal of an inclusive, world-class university in and for Africa. Forward together.” – Prof. Wim de Villiers, Rector and Vice-Chancellor, 2018​
