Friends provide ongoing support by contributing annually.

Friends of the Smith College Libraries 75th Anniversary logo2017 marks the diamond jubilee of the Friends and a legacy of support for the Libraries. The four campus libraries and three Special Collections have benefited in ways too numerable to mention from the generosity of our Friends. Now, with the imminent closure of Neilson Library and Alumnae Gym for reconstruction, the FSCL will continue to provide flexible income to help the Libraries meet imminent needs to maintain a high level of service to students and faculty during this time of transition.

Gifts of Materials

The Libraries continue to add gifts of  books and other materials that meet curricular and research needs.

Neilson and Young Science libraries will not accept gift books until further notice, due to the impending renovation of Neilson. (Both collections will be in storage during the renovation.)
