About the Library

The Bette E. Landman Library is a three-story building at the heart of the Arcadia campus. In 2002, a multi-million dollar renovation campaign brought the former Atwood library firmly into the 21st century with a solid show of support from the entire University community. Its striking design won a 2005 AIA/ALA Library Building Award.
