Located at the entrance of Doe Library, Morrison Library is one of the architectural treasures of the UC Berkeley campus -- a beautiful and tranquil room designed for leisurely reading, browsing, and relaxing from the rigors of academic life. Morrison Library welcomes students, faculty, staff, community members, and visitors. The library contains several distinct collections: Current Fiction and Non-Fiction, Poetry, Music, and the Graphic Art Loan Collection. Staff members are available to provide circulation services and assist in using the collections.

Morrison Library may be scheduled by individuals and groups directly affiliated with UC for evening and weekend public events that support the Library's mission and initiatives. Morrison Library can accommodate events for 50-250 people depending on the type of seating. Preference is given to events open to the campus community and the public. Requests may be denied for a number of reasons such as timing in academic year, availability of staff, scope of event, security concerns, and facilities limitations. Honoring the Morrison Library’s primary role as a library space and collection, requests to schedule Morrison Library during its regular public service hours will not be considered.
