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, as well as information about co-sponsoring an event or hosting an exhibition at the library.
