Welcome to Friends of the Library

Formed in 1948, the Friends of the University of Wisconsin–Madison Libraries is one of the oldest university library support groups in the U.S. It includes people like you: alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members. Through the generosity of Friends we are able to provide materials and opportunities to the campus community that would not otherwise be available. As a Friend, you help ensure that the Libraries remain one of UW–Madison’s strongest assets—a virtual backbone of university life.
