• To conduct events that promote and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region.
• To reach out to students and make connections with them in places other than the classroom.
• To portray the library as a place to share, explore, discuss and think about ideas and events.

The Library Athenaeum will consist of speeches or presentations, panel discussions, debates, readings and performances. Faculty, staff and students are invited to submit proposals for future presentations. Proposal forms and additional information can be found on the Library Athenaeum Web site at http://library.apsu.edu/events/athenaeum.htm.
