Friends of the Library

When you make a gift to the University Libraries, you automatically become a Friend of the Library. Your gift can be an outright donation, pledge or gift-in-kind to any area or fund that is part of the University Libraries.

As a Friend of the Library, you will receive Windows, a biannual magazine that keeps you up-to-date on issues and events in the life of the University Libraries. You will also receive special notifications of events and exhibitions.

Friends of the Library who make leadership-level gifts annually ($1,000+) are a part of the University Librarian’s Circle. Members of this group create a thriving library for the entire Carolina community.
