About

Beginning modestly in the fall of 2013, the Library Culture Series is a program of events at the Laurier Library, including artist exhibits, musical performances, author readings and more. The series is an outgrowth of the Library’s 2020 Strategic Plan, which calls for the establishment of the Library as a major cultural centre for the university and community.
