Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden will deliver the 2022 Windsor Lecture on Thursday, April 21, at 7:00 p.m. The lecture, which is co-sponsored by the University Library and Center for Advanced Study, will be held via Zoom, and advance registration is required.

In her presentation, “Engaging Library Users in a Pandemic and Post Pandemic World,” Hayden will discuss inviting patrons to enter a library’s front door and digital door and engaging a diverse library community both onsite and virtually.

Hayden was sworn in as the 14th Librarian of Congress on September 14, 2016. The first woman and first African American to lead the national library, Hayden was nominated to the position by President Barack Obama on February 24, 2016, and her nomination was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 13.


The Windsor Lecture honors the career of Phineas L. Windsor, who served as director of the University of Illinois Library and iSchool from 1909 to 1940. Gifts from alumni and friends provide generous support for this ongoing lecture series.
