Library Borrowing Card
An annual donation of $40 or more to the UW-Madison Libraries entitles the donor to a UW-Madison Libraries Borrowing Card. This provides access to all campus libraries, in-person online database access, and borrowing privileges.

After making your donation, if you wish to receive a library card please fill out the online borrowing card application. On that form, select “Friends of the Library” as your affiliation. You will receive an email notice when your borrowing card is ready.

Libraries Magazine
Friends receive e-mail notification of new issues of Libraries, a magazine of the UW-Madison Libraries that is published twice a year. This expository magazine includes special news from the Friends, recent library news, and information on events, exhibits, and collections.
