After almost two years of renovation work (with an additional two+ years of planning), the renovated Hayden Library is almost complete! We are excited to share what you can expect when the fences come down and the full library opens on January 13, 2020, starting with the answer to the big question: what is happening with the books? The book collections aren’t going away. Instead we’re innovating how we as a university community will interact with our library collection, and to do so we will be taking full advantage of all of our library facilities. Find out more in the post Hayden2020: The Books are Returning.
We will be sharing updates for the rest of the year about study spaces, the new creativity and discovery spaces and services, and more.
Hayden tower on track for January 2020 opening
Originally constructed in 1966, ASU's largest library, Hayden Library, is in the final stages of its 21st century transformation.
Set to re-open in January 2020, the reinvented library will feature above-ground entrances, enhanced student space with added seating, state-of-the-art learning labs, inspiring exhibits and active print collections, information points on every floor and an entire floor devoted to innovation.
