The library houses ever-growing collections of print and digital resources related to art + design, provides writing assistance and tutoring, and maintains our learning management system, ACAD Mosaic.

ACAD's library was named after acclaimed artist Luke Lindoe (1913–2000) in 1988. A painter, sculptor, ceramics artist, and entrepreneur, Lindoe played a central role in defining the diversity of art practice at ACAD today.

Lindoe studied at ACAD (then called the Provincial Institute of Technology and Art) in 1935 before becoming an instructor at the college in 1946. He is also credited as the founder of ACAD's Ceramics Department.
