There is some information on this FHSU website page:
http://www.fhsu.edu/facilities-planning/campus-buildings/Forsyth-Library/

And also here:http://www.fhsu.edu/library/archives/forsyth-library-history.html

More extensive information, and photos, are available in these books. NOTE: The first two are available as e-books. While the library building is closed for construction, you can obtain The First 75 years...through an Interlibrary Loan request. 

Lighthouse on the Plains: FHSU, 1902-2002, by James Forsythe. 
A History of Fort Hays Kansas State College, 1902-1961, by L.D. Wooster
The First 75 Years: A History of Fort Hays State University, 1902-1977, by James Forsythe

Just look for "library" in the index in the back of each book to locate relevant passages.

You can see old photos of the library in the Lyman Dwight Wooster Photograph Collection, part of our Digital Collections.  Just search for "forsyth library".
