Spaces, Collections, and Research Help


  • Need a space to study, work on a monologue, rehearse with friends, or collaboratively (re)view a performance? Find a space.
  • Want to exhibit or perform in the library? Contact Sarah Falls.


  • Need a book or film that we don't have? We'll do our best to get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.
  • Have ideas for titles/areas of study that would benefit our permanent collection? Request a purchase.


Your Library Liaison is here to help you with research, to assist with locating or acquiring books/plays/other resources, and help you integrate the library into your projects, classroom, production, or exhibition.
