A Message from the Board

“A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library.”

~ Shelby Foote, American Historian and Novelist

2019 marks 25 years since Friends of MSU Library (FOL) was founded. Thanks to generous support from so many of you, FOL has been able to raise funds for important projects and foster awareness of MSU Library.

The library, and MSU as a whole, has evolved more than the FOL founders could have imagined. In 1994, MSU had almost 11,000 students, the internet was just becoming widely-used, and the library functioned largely as a book repository.  Today, MSU has almost 17,000 students, the most heavily used library collections are digital, and the library has become a popular study and collaborative learning space.

As president of the FOL board of directors, it is my since hope we can count on your continued support as FOL looks forward to the next 25 years. We hope to see you in 2019.

Go Cats!
