Join the ASU community for the grand opening celebration of Hayden2020

Capping off a $90 million renovation, Hayden Library, originally built in 1966, re-opened its doors on January 13, 2020, with an eye toward maximum accessibility, engagement and support for the university’s growing student population.

Hayden Library's revamped five-story tower, which sits at the center of ASU's Tempe campus, now features nearly double the student space, enhanced study areas, community-driven book collections, two state-of-the-art reading rooms, a variety of research services and interdisciplinary learning labs.

All are welcome to attend the grand celebration, which will include tours, interactive exhibits, a lineup of speakers and refreshments on every floor. Come celebrate a new era of access and engagement for ASU's largest library, now reinvented for the 21st century!
