The Friends of the Library Lecture Series brings together valued donors and other members of the Waterloo community for lectures by distinguished speakers on topics of timely and/or enduring interest to the University of Waterloo community.
Past Friends of the Library speakers have included Beckie Scott, Olympic cross country skier, Chris Hadfield, astronaut, and Richard Gwyn, political commentator. Visit the profiles page for information and photos from our past Friends of the Library events.
Celebrating University of Waterloo Authors
During the Friends of the Library event, the Library showcases the works of campus authors, artists, and composers. This initiative honours the achievements of those individuals in the University of Waterloo community who have authored a book, composed a musical score, mounted an art show, or were recognized for their design or photography work.
