Welcome to Leslie J. Savage Library

This particular building’s unparalleled artistry and character arises from the fact that its West Wing was designed by Temple Buell of the Buell Theatre in Denver. The vaulted ceilings and general uniformity in the West Wing Quiet Room creates a formal yet relaxed atmosphere branding it with a rather East Coast impression. Leslie J. Savage Library is more than just a fixture of Western—it is a symbol of academic integrity making it a perfect venue befitting any event.
