The library is a busy place! More than two million people passed through the doors from 2014-2021.
Due to the Pandemic and other considerations, the library has had to curtail some of its open hours; Sunday we are open from 2:00 PM to 12:00 AM; Monday through Wednesday, we are open from 8:00 AM to 12:00 AM; Thursday, we are open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM; Fridays from 8:00 to 4:00 PM, and Saturdays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
There are 13 group study rooms that students can reserve. Reservations can be made here.
The Cura Personalis Corner and Prayer Room provide spaces in the library for students to pray, meditate, do yoga, or participate in similar activities to de-stress and ensure they are taking care of themselves.
Faculty often place books and DVDs on reserve for students to use in the library.
The library borrows material from other libraries for Canisius patrons and lends items to those libraries as part of reciprocal agreements.
