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.

Special Funds used to Expand Indigenous Collection

This year, $50,000 of the library’s collection budget was set aside to strengthen strategic areas of the book collection, as identified by librarians and informed by academic and research needs. One area that the library prioritized is the expansion of our existing collection of books by indigenous authors and publishers. Leddy Library also acquired indigenous-themed material to support disciplines across the 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!
 
Stationary bikes with attached desks have been set up along the northern window in the Leddy Library Main building.  Use will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  These bikes allow users to exercise the body as well as the mind even during the busiest times of the semester.
