Libraries Matter.

Did you know that there are more libraries in America than there are McDonalds or Starbucks? 


Join us April 12-18 as we celebrate National Library Week. All week long through @lmulibrary social media we'll be sharing stories about libraries and their impact on communities - both here at LMU and off the bluff. The week culminates on April 16 with our third LMU Human Library, which you won't want to miss.


We also invite anyone curious about the vast career opportunities in libraries of all kinds to join us for our semi-annual Careers in Libraries Luncheon during convo hour on Tuesday April 14. Attendees will be treated to a Mendocino Farms lunch and a panel discussion featuring four talented, passionate librarians from public, academic, and special libraries sharing the paths that led them to librarianship and their experiences in this dynamic, ever-changing profession. 


Reserve your spot now! 

The Shanghai Collection

Join our Digital Library Program to celebrate the newly launched Werner von Boltenstern Shanghai Photograph and Negative Collection, a remarkable array of 1937-1947 Shanghai images that covers numerous subject matters including the lives of Chinese citizens, Jewish Holocaust refugees, French and British nationals and the Japanese military presence. 

Program is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served. 

Wednesday April 8 / 4:30 p.m. / Von der Ahe Suite

The St. John's Bible In Word, Art, & Music

The Saint John's Bible is the product of collaboration between artist-calligraphers, illuminators, scholars, and the monks of St. John's Abbey in Minnesota, and is the first completely handwritten, illuminated Bible to have been produced since the invention of the printing press.


Our limited Heritage Edition reproduction of this manuscript is the gift of Laura '74 and Steven Williamson in honor of former LMU president Robert B. Lawton, S.J.

All are invited to join the William H. Hannon Library, the Program in Catholic Studies, and the Lilly Faculty Seminar on April 15 for a unique presentation and discussion with Suzanne Moore, artist and illuminator for the Saint John's Bible.

The full program for the day will also include musical performances, readings and presentations from LMU faculty, staff and students. 


Wednesday April 15 / 3 - 7 p.m. / Von der Ahe Suite
