There are two easy ways to donate to the Friends of the Library Fund:
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 borrowing privileges.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to library buildings is limited to individuals with campus Wiscards. A borrowing card does allow you to put items in the catalog on hold and pick them up at Memorial or Steenbock.
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.
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.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Friends:
