Library Events & Exhibits

Throughout the academic year, the William H. Hannon Library offers a full lineup of innovative and interdisciplinary programming, including lectures, workshops, exhibitions, receptions, and other special events in support of our mission to enable learners to feed their curiosity, experience new worlds, develop their ideas, inform their decision-making, and inspire others. Below you will find links to additional information about our current and upcoming schedule.

  • Interested in Co-Sponsoring an Event with the Library?

    The Hannon Library strives to offer programming that is intentional, integrative, inclusive, and interdisciplinary. To that end, we welcome proposals to partner on events with other on-campus groups, including student organizations, academic departments, and administrative units. We also welcome proposals from groups outside LMU. For more information, please contact the Outreach & Communications Librarian, John Jackson, at

    LMU faculty and staff who would like to reserve space for an event in the library (regardless of whether the library will be a partner on the event) should use our Event Space Request Form.
