An image reads 'Welcome to the Library' surrounded by wiggly characters in orange and blue.

We acknowledge that our space is situated on unceded, traditional and ancestral xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories.

As a part of the Learning Commons at Emily Carr University, the Library + Archives invites our community to use the space for all manner of creative practices including research, collaboration and relaxation.

This summer, we filmed a short video introduction to the space - watch it here! Welcome to the Library!
