Welcome to Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries

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, materials and opportunities are provided 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.
