About the Library
The music video, “Head over Heels” by the English band Tears for Fears was filmed in this library in June 1985.
Located on the campus of Victoria University in the Emmanuel College building, Emmanuel Library is one of the most beautiful libraries at the University of Toronto. It provides a tranquil setting for studying and research.
