Join Friends of University Libraries

This is your official friend request.

We invite you to share and join in a new experience — Friends of University Libraries.

Some of you may know us as an archive of world-class research collections, or as the place where you crammed for finals, or as simply that big building behind the fountain. We're all those things, and more.

When you join Friends of University Libraries, you connect with other lifelong learners in a rich variety of experiences:

  • Gallery exhibits that explore the natural world, visual arts, authors and literature, scientific inquiry and historical and contemporary social issues
  • Talks by accomplished authors, musicians, artists and creative influencers, thinkers and leaders
  • Deep dives into the world of collecting, conservation and curation
  • Tours, workshops, demonstrations and research opportunities
  • Celebrations of student research, discoveries and accomplishments supported by libraries resources
  • Socializing with people who share your interests

And of course, your Friends membership directly supports library spaces, student employees who learn while they earn, collection acquisitions, and the Friends Endowment.

Friends ensure that students in all Carolina colleges and schools, researchers, and community members have top-notch library resources — from online academic journals to comfy chairs — right now and long into the future.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
