Friends of Western Libraries

When you make a gift through Friends of Western Libraries, you're doing so much more than simply putting another book on our shelves. You're playing an active role in providing today's students with access to the knowledge, education, and technology they'll need to thrive in the 21st century. Your membership in Friends of Western Libraries will help us give our students the edge they need for success at Western, and far beyond.

Your membership contribution will support a variety of important library initiatives. Members who contribute $100 or more will have an opportunity to serve on the committee that decides how the dollars will be spent each year. Members are entitled to a variety of fun benefits.

Gifts of any amount are deeply appreciated. Please read below for information about our participation categories, and the benefits of membership. To make a gift now, please use our online donation form or click the gold button to the right.
