With craftsman details throughout, the Manchester 图书馆 & Learning Center honors the three Irving Gill-designed buildings on Bishop’s campus. Filled with more than 27,000 books and over 90,000 e-books, the facility is a blend of tradition and technology, including five group study rooms with 50-inch video monitors for digital projects, individual study carrels, a writing center and a media lab.
With laptops, iPads and wireless access both inside the building and on the neighboring Larmour Lawn & Plaza, information is not tied to a single location or piece of equipment.
The $10 million Manchester 图书馆 & Learning Center was dedicated on August 22, 2012, and is 配备了太阳能系统，学校的太阳能计划的一部分。
Thanks to generous funding support from the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation, a 媒体实验室 is open to the Bishop’s academic community. This lab, located on the lower level of the Manchester 图书馆 & Learning Center, provides students a place to collaborate, create and learn.
