Friends of the Libraries

The University of Connecticut Libraries strives for excellence in its collections, services, and facilities. To serve New England's top-ranked public university, we rely on the help of our many friends in our quest for excellence. As we struggle in difficult financial times to maintain and improve a world-class library to serve our user community, we increasingly rely on private contributions to enhance our offerings.

The Libraries offer a number of annual gift levels to accommodate its many friends. All donations of $100 or more annually qualify the contributor(s) as a “Friend of the Library.” Donations of $500 or more receive special recognition and are entitled to exclusive benefits. The benefits associated with varied levels of annual support are as follows:

$10,000+

University Librarian's Circle

$5,000 - $9,999

Benefactor

$1,000 - $4,999

Patron

$500 - $999

Curator

$250 - $499

All Friends of the Library receive the following benefits:

  • UConn Libraries, the Libraries' quarterly newsletter, and all library publications
  • Invitations to exhibit openings and special events
  • Community Borrower privileges
  • Friends who donate $500 or more also receive an invitation to the Libraries' Annual Friends' Dinner and Reception featuring a special guest.

A significant number for the Libraries' Friends have chosen to include the University of Connecticut Libraries in their annual giving or estate plans. If you wish to discuss annual giving opportunities, special projects, or estate planning opportunities to benefit the Libraries, please contact:
