Special Notice as of June, 2022

Because of the ongoing COVID situation, we must limit the number and kinds of book donations we can accept. Smaller donations of one box or less can still be brought to the Circulation Desk during Library hours, but please contact Mr. William Hennessey in advance for guidance on larger donations (see below). Thank you for your understanding and your support. We hope to be back to normal operations soon.

You can still join the Friends or renew your membership online by clicking here.

Our Mission

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 is to support 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 only 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.
