Oscar Sonstelie Library

NOTE: During remote learning, we are now offering library material pickup. This service will be offered until it is safe for students to return to on-campus. In the meantime, in order to take advantage of this opportunity, we ask students to email Mrs. Smoliak with resource requests by noon on the Friday before the week that they are needed.  Requests received after this noon deadline won’t be processed until at least one week later.  Students will be notified via email when their items are ready for pickup from the drop box inside the Royal Street entrance.

At this time, we ask that students postpone book returns in the hopes that we can be in person soon.

The library is open to students Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

A full-time teacher-librarian provides library orientations for new students and assists all students with their research needs.  Resources in the library include an extensive print collection of fiction and non-fiction books. Students have access to the LCHS library online catalogue and several major academic databases on and off campus. The library is a quiet, welcoming space where students can work independently on homework or use one of the desktop computers.  Dorm students have access to the library after-hours for studying and research under the supervision of the Residence Assistants.

Printing and photocopying are available in the library for Luther College students upon the purchase of a $5 printing card.  Cards may be purchased from the teacher-librarian or the main office.  Printing balances do not expire from one academic year to the next.
