- to enhance library resources
- to foster appreciation for the library
The mission of the Samford University Library Friends is to enhance existing and planned library resources and programs, and to serve as partners in fostering appreciation for the library.
Developing and maintaining a scholarly library is a long-range enterprise that must have a wide base of support. The Samford Library has received many worthy gifts through the years that have enabled it to grow to its current status. With the establishment of Library Friends, we are seeking to intentionally build a base of support for enhancement of the library. Participation in the Friends allows a person to share in the growth and enrichment of the Samford University Library.
Opportunities for Enrichment
- Honor - Donors may give a one time or occasional monetary gift in honor of an individual. A bookplate with appropriate acknowledgment will be affixed to each item.
- Memorial - Donors may give a monetary gift in memory of an individual. A bookplate with appropriate acknowledgment will be affixed to each item
