Special Funds used to Expand Indigenous Collection

This year the Leddy Library has set aside special funds to supplement various areas of our collection. The library has prioritized investing in the expansion of our existing collection of books by indigenous authors and publishers. The Leddy has also acquired indigenous-themed material that support a number of disciplines on campus, such as philosophy and education.

New Study Bikes at the Leddy

Have you ever found yourself torn between studying and staying fit?  Well the Leddy Library has the solution for you!  We’ve installed three new study bikes, so you can get your work done while getting a work out!
