FRIENDS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
...in a truly remarkable way
These are the folks who put your gifts to work—library
employees who benefit from your generosity. Friends
helped the library raise an incredible $38.7 million during
the Carolina First Campaign. These gifts make possible the wealth
of resources thousands of users need for teaching, learning, and
research. Gifts of all amounts help the library acquire important
collections, make them accessible, and offer instructional workshops
so that students can become skilled users of all library resources.
We continue to need help to strengthen this library. Our greatest
priority is for unrestricted funds so that university librarians can
allocate money where it’s needed most—to keep resources and
services relevant and accessible. We can’t say thank you enough
to our Friends who have been loyal supporters in the past. Won’t
you join them in preserving our future?
