The Women's Centre Library is located in TC3014, our All Genders Resource Area. You will find the entrance in the Rotunda (between Maggie Benston Centre and the gym) across from SFPIRG. Self-identified women may also enter through the lounge.

Our library owns over 4,000 items exploring a wide range of topics from a feminist or women-centric perspective - including history, law, literature, immigration, economics, environment, health, art, and more. Drop by for research help, to browse our shelves, or to find a book or magazine for reading and relaxation purposes.
