Library Events

Library events support academic success and promote scholarship, engagement, and community. Many of our events are open to the general public, and we welcome and encourage a broad audience of students, faculty, staff, alumni and neighbors.

This page provides more information about ongoing series, annual events, and opportunities for co-sponsorship and event hosting. For more information, contact us via email or phone 202-885-3847.
