Hazy Library on the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus

The Hazy Library opened as a campus landmark building in 2008. The facility incorporates emerging information technologies throughout the building for individual use and team project collaboration.  Research and study accommodations support different learning styles, and open seating and tables allow students to enjoy the mountain vista views.

Worthington Reading Room

A reading room is named in memory of Gertrude V. Worthington, a former ERAU Board of Trustees member for over 20 years and avid supporter of libraries. This rich, warm, and stately environment has oversized leather chairs, large tables with banker's lamps, study carrels, and the Howe Eagle Collection. As Worthington stated, it "ensures that students have a place to call their own at study time."
