That's what they say! Now, we don't really have an authoritative source for this (if you do, please share), but that is the legend. Take a close look at the leather on the doors-- it doesn't exactly look like other leather you may have seen. Also, the old portion of the library was constructed at a time (1928) when it would have been more likely that whale skins would have been available. However you take it, as icky or cool, it is part of the story that makes our library unique.
