Friends of the Sojourner Truth Library

Founded in 1996, the Friends of the Sojourner Truth Library is an association of faculty, students, alumni, and community and business persons dedicated to promoting and enhancing the Library as a shared resource.


Our Mission

The Friends of the Library is committed to supporting the Sojourner Truth Library, a library of distinction—a regional center of research and scholarship. Through a variety of fundraising activities, we provide an extra margin of excellence above and beyond that which can be achieved through conventional institutional funding. Except for very minor postage and other costs, funds collected are used to enrich the Library’s collection of books, electronic resources, and other materials and programming essential to learning and inquiry. Friends-sponsored activities include guest speakers, used book sales, and periodic gatherings and celebrations.
