Supporting the Libraries


Contributions to the Libraries enable Columbia to build on its tradition of academic excellence, and to retain its prominence as one of the largest academic research libraries in the United States. Alumni, faculty, community supporters—anyone who loves books, libraries, and scholarly research is encouraged to become a Friend of the Columbia Libraries. Your financial support assists each of the 22 libraries at Columbia, serving the wide range of academic programs and professional schools. In exchange, members enjoy a special relationship with the Libraries that includes an annual calendar of cultural, educational, and social events.
