Concordia University is transforming the Webster Library as part of an overall plan to improve the efficiency and quality of library spaces and to respond to the needs of a growing student population.

The east side of LB-3 is closed for renovations until Fall 2015, and even though the Webster Library still provides many places to study on LB-2 and LB-4, we realize that you may have difficulty finding a spot in the downtown library, especially during peak times.

When LB3 east reopens this fall, it will feature more than 450 individual spaces for library users, but until then we’d like to help you locate some other spaces on campus where you may find a spot to study. These spaces come in all shapes and sizes!  Some are quieter than others but all of them offer a workable temporary alternative to accommodate your needs for the duration of the Webster Library Transformation project.

Thank you for bearing with us during the renovations.
