14 Aug Ekstrom Library
More than books
Ekstrom Library is one of the buildings that surrounds the quad. Get acquainted. Beyond being the best place on campus to study and having tons of computers for use, the library has lots going for it.
- Get a cup of coffee and snack at Tulip Tree Café. The coffee is from Heine Bros. Coffee, a Louisville favorite.
- Check out a not-necessarily academic book from the Browsing Collection. Lots of new titles are there.
- Reserve or check out a Kindle or iPad.
- Check out a TV show or movie DVD from the SGA DVD collection. It’s free.
- The newly renovated lobby features permanent and changing exhibits on a variety of topics. Display cases are across from the circulation desk (west wing, near classrooms) and exhibits often are housed throughout the library.
- Go to the McConnell-Chao Archives (lower level, east wing).
- See items from UofL’s Rare Books collections displayed in the Kain Gallery, lower level, east wing, and Photographic Archives Gallery both on the lower level, east wing. Sometimes the galleries host guest shows.
Bordered by the Bingham Humanities Building and Ekstrom Library, it’s a great place to stop and take a break between classes. Enjoy the serenity of green space and also the hustle and bustle, as a variety of groups set up here to promote events and sometimes give away free T-shirts and other swag.
