The mission of the Gonzaga Library is to teach students 21st century research skills and information gathering techniques that are vital in today's world.
Students acquire these skills through library instruction and hands-on use of library materials and resources. The librarians work closely with faculty from all disciplines to ensure that library research is integrated into the curriculum. In addition, the librarians encourage students to develop a love of reading and lifelong learning.
The library also plays an integral role in student life at Gonzaga. On a typical school day, you’ll find students and faculty collaborating on projects, engaged in quiet reading, working on computers, or just relaxing with friends. Board games and chess sets are always available, and the popular annual ping pong and mini-golf tournaments have students and faculty vying for bragging rights. The library’s annual poetry slam and speaker series often feature Gonzaga alumni. To view photos of current and past events held in the library, please visit us on Facebook!
