Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

For centuries, academic libraries were, first and foremost, places where students and faculty members could find and work with books and articles in printed form.

But in recent years, with the proliferation of digital media, the role of libraries has been transformed.

The Laurier Library is the university’s intellectual and cultural heart. It is the place where our community comes to access and interact with information and people across all media, generating new ideas and engaging with the great questions of our time.

We are home to the award-winning Robert Langen Art Gallery; to WLU Press, a leading Canadian scholarly publisher; and to a thriving program of author events, film screenings, concerts and workshops.

We also house the Laurier Archives, keeper of the university’s historical record and legacy as well as leading collections on the environment, music, and the Lutheran Church.

And, of course, we continue to provide the digital resources, books, services and study spaces that inspire our users to achieve excellence in their research, work and lives.

We’re a lively pillar of the Laurier experience – a hub of learning, interaction, and big ideas. We’re also a place where you can take in a concert, attend a poetry reading, or catch up with friends over lattes at our café.
