Classes, Events & Meetings at Cowles Library

Cowles Library is the main library of Drake University, and a hub of the academic experience. Classroom space is utilized in the fall, spring and summer semesters, as well as during J-Term. Many campus groups and organizations — including both the faculty and student senates — meet regularly in the library. A wide variety of cultural events and speakers are supported throughout the academic year, generally in the grand-restored Reading Room. The James Collier Drake Heritage Room serves as a gallery for exhibits and displays.
