5 Ways to Give to the Library

  1. Support the Library Fund

    Gifts to the Library Fund supplement our annual operating budget and provide critical unrestricted discretionary funding in support of the Library's greatest needs. Gifts are used for projects that help the Library implement new technologies, develop our collection in key areas, increase access to online information resources, and support the digitization of our archives and special collections.

  2. Support Library Collections

    We welcome gifts that help us purchase resources for the Library. You may specify that your donation be used to acquire materials in a particular subject area or that it be spent for books of the librarians' choosing.

  3. Support the Heal A Book Program

    The Library's Archives and Special Collections Rare Book Room contains more than 6,000 volumes, including items from the 17th century. They have been collected through donations from faculty, alumni, and the community since the University's founding in 1940. The Heal a Book program provides funds to support ongoing preservation procedures and to repair, bind, or replace books of significant value.

  4. Support Library Events

    The Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library frequently hosts events to support its mission and the University's core commitments. A gift to sponsor a Library event helps to financially support a lecture, exhibit, or book presentation.

  5. Donate Books
