Events @ the Library

An event at the Von der Ahe Family Suite.


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 additional information about our current programming schedule.

The 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 library's Outreach and Engagement Department at
