Waldo Library and all other WMU Libraries facilities are temporarily closed through Friday, June 12, in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and to protect the health and well-being of our community.
Waldo Library is the main library, located in the heart of Western Michigan University's main campus. It’s a large, welcoming building that offers a wide range of spaces and collections to accommodate the modern scholar.
With late-night hours, a café, personalized expert help, and a wide range of spaces and technologies, Waldo Library is both a casual gathering place and a dynamic academic center for research excellence.
Faculty and instructors are invited to bring students for a hands-on experience using the records, manuscripts and other materials in our unique collections.
