Welcome to the Lucy Cooper Finch Library, a place where you can study, read, relax, and grab a good cup of joe to stay awake during exam time.

The WPU Library doesn’t just offer you books; it has much more. You can check out lap tops, tablets, and even video cameras. Not to mention, we have plenty of computer work stations, printers, and study rooms equipped with LCD presentation monitors for group sessions.

The library also houses the Center for Student Success, where you can get tutoring, advising, and other academic services.
