What Happens With Your Donation

Membership fees and other monetary donations made to Friends of the Library are used to purchase books for the collection, enhance electronic resources, and occasionally support educational lectures and events beyond those which institutional funding is able to sponsor. Books donated to the Friends of the Library are sorted: some are added to the collections, while others are sold at used book sales to raise funds for library acquisitions. All donations contribute directly to the enhancement of the educational experience of students and the community.
