More than 50 years ago, Father Hesburgh dreamed of a new library building that would become the academic heart of the University.
He envisioned that this library and its now world famous Word of Life mural would stand as a symbol of academic excellence and the pursuit of truth.
We celebrate this vision-turned-reality and the vital contributions the Libraries have made to the advancement of Notre Dame.
Together, we embrace this vision anew, ensuring that the Libraries will inspire intellectual inquiry and academic excellence for the next 50 years and beyond.
