Lathrop Library, named after Jane Lathrop Stanford, is one of more than 20 libraries within the community of libraries at Stanford University. Located at the corner of Lasuen Mall and Serra Mall, the library will be home to all functions currently held in Meyer Library, including Academic Computing, the East Asia Library, Technical Services, and DLSS/ESP, as well as space managed by the registrar and VPUE.

The library's design fits both its form and function. Mission Bell provided custom glass display walls, millwork details, wood veneer walls, paneled ceilings and magazine racks. The library will be a great place for students to comfortably gather and learn about how technology is shaping our world. The library also includes a comfortable break room for the Stanford staff. Mission Bell manufactured the break room's cabinets and countertops with quality sure to impress for years to come. Of special note on the top floor Mission Bell constructed beautiful exterior benches from Ipe wood.
