North Gallery

You are welcome to visit the Kenneth Spencer Research Library's North Gallery, which includes the signature feature of the building: a glass-enclosed book stack with selections from our collections and a curtain window that overlooks the beautiful KU campus. From August to May, artwork created by KU students is also on display in the North Gallery as part of the LibArt program, sponsored by KU Libraries.

The North Gallery and all other exhibit spaces in the Library are open to visitors whenever the building is open; visit the library hours page for more information.
