The Architecture Library is located on the second floor of the McEwen School of Architecture at 85 Elm Street in downtown Sudbury. The Library is accessible by stairwell and elevator and is on the same floor as three of the six studios and the majority of faculty offices. The Library is approximately 4,850 square feet and is heavily used during term. It is the only room in the entire complex of architecture buildings that is carpeted, and interestingly, the carpet has a pixelated graphic of the Sudbury impact basin. Library exhibits showcase materials or events at the School, Library Lunch & Learn sessions and students’ design work, making the space dynamic and welcoming.

The Architecture Library is configured with eight alcove-styled carrels for one or two individuals each, as well as long maple tables with caster seating with room for up to seventy (the typical class size at the School of Architecture). The informal lounge seating at the south end of the library is conducive for quiet reading, informal discussions, or public events. Given that the Library officially opened January 19, 2017, the facility, which showcases cross-laminated timber (CLT), is new, warm and inviting. It serves as a wonderful breakout space for students looking for an alternative to studio seating, for small group discussion, or a quiet place for research or study.
