Our books are catalogued under the Primo library system, which means that if you are searching for gender-themed books and journals at the Laurier library, you will probably be referred to the Women’s Centre Circulation Desk. This means you just have to stop in at the Women’s Centre (see the Contact Us menu option for directions and hours) and we will sign out your books for you. Library materials will be loaned to you for the same amount of time as all other Primo items; our journals may not be signed out, but we are happy to let you (legally) photocopy the pages you need.
*Note: We are waiting for the Library circulation software used for signing out books to be installed on the Women’s Centre computer. In the meantime, you can reserve your books online and have them delivered to the Main Circulation Desk or other pick-up location in the Primo system (at Laurier, Guelph, or Waterloo).
We also have a growing library of VHS tapes, DVDs and CDs, which we would welcome you to watch or listen to at the Centre for school or for pleasure.
Book Wish List
The Women’s Centre is continually expanding our library. We have set up a wish list at Amazon.ca for volunteers to post books that the Centre is interested in acquiring. If you have any of the books listed, or are able to purchase any, this is a great way to contribute to the Laurier Women’s Centre! We ask that you try to purchase used, locally, or from a social enterprise bookseller if at all possible (see suggestions below).
