Welcome to Friends of the Library

The Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries exist to support the operations of the UW-Madison campus libraries, particularly in maintaining, expanding, and preserving the Libraries’ collections. These collections, spread among more than 30 campus libraries, are a gathering point for students and scholars from across the state and around the world. Now more than ever, support is necessary in order to maintain a world-class library system.
