Athenaeum events are held on the third floor of Woodward Library and are free and open to the public. Students are highly encouraged to attend.

The purpose of the Library Athenaeum series, launched in 2007, is to conduct events that promote and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region, reach out to students and make connections with them in places other than the classroom and to portray the library as a place to share, explore, discuss and think about ideas and events. Sessions consist of speeches or presentations, panel discussions, debates, readings and performances.
