The library accommodates a variety of events, receptions, exhibits and displays during the year. Library hosted activities include faculty and student scholar talks, exhibits in multiple display cases located throughout the building, photo exhibits using display panels or easels, academic poster sessions, art exhibits, receptions and much, much more.
Through events and exhibits, the Waidner-Spahr Library enhances the cultural and academic life of the community by illuminating resources and research activity, and promoting scholarship and creative endeavors on campus. The Library’s Events and Exhibits committee is responsible for overseeing all events and exhibits held within the library building that promote scholarship, cultural diversity and community.
