Charles Library

 

Charles Library
Temple’s new, state-of-the-art Charles Library, located a block from Tyler, is an incubator for collaboration and the exchange of ideas. Designed by Snøhetta, the library is home to maker spaces, a robotic retrieval system, lectures and exhibitions. Students have access to guidance on projects and a specialized reference librarian devoted to Tyler students’ needs.

For more information, please check out the book Library as Stoa: Public Space and Academic Mission in Snøhetta’s Charles Library, written by Tyler Associate Dean and Director of Architecture and Environmental Design, Kate Wingert-Playdon.
