About Brooks Library

Central Washington University’s Brooks Library is located in the northwest corner on campus.  Built in 1973, the third library in the University’s history, Brooks Library, with the branch libraries located at the University Centers in Des Moines and Lynnwood, supports the students and faculty in their academic and research needs.

The Libraries’ vision statement describes in part, “the Central Washington University libraries will be the hub and academic town square of the University by being an essential component of the academic and creative life of the institution.”
