Fines to Food

The end of winter term is approaching and spring is just around the corner!
 
This year when you pay your library fines you’ll also be helping your fellow students in need! The campus food bank is in of need of healthy goods that meet the needs of our student population.  

As a result, the Leddy Library is donating 10% of the fines we receive to the campus food bank so that they can help meet the needs of students here at the University of Windsor.

FREE film screening on April 4th

The Leddy Library will be hosting a FREE movie screening for National Canadian Film Day!  There will be free popcorn!

The film is  “I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing”, a quirky Canadian film from 1987 that was filmed in Toronto.  This year NCFD is showcasing women in Canadian film.  The writer and director of this movie, Patricia Rozema, is from Sarnia!

Take a break from studying to watch this (short—only 81 minutes) movie!  It’s a great stress-reliever, and your brain can use the break!

We’ve Doubled our Number of Group Study Rooms!

The Leddy Library is proud to say that we have doubled our number of group study rooms! That’s right – we have gone from four study rooms to eight!  We’ve been listening to feedback from our students and have worked tirelessly to carve out space for these new rooms.

Four of the study rooms are located on the 3rd floor of the Main building, three are on the 3rd floor Leddy West, and one is on the 2nd floor of Leddy West.

They’re first come first serve.  Drop by the Circulation Desk to check availability. You can “borrow” a group study room for 3 hours at a time.

Upcoming Space Assessment

Starting on Monday February 12th we will be conducting some regular sweeps of the library to help us assess space use. You may notice some of our staff wandering up and down the building with clipboards during this time. They will collecting information on how many patrons are using different spaces in the building. They will not be collecting information about any of our patrons. The information collected will be used for internal space planning purposes only. Staff will be as unobtrusive as possible and there should be no disruption.
