Friends of the Libraries

Founded in 2009, the Friends of the Libraries is essential to the success of the Loyola University Chicago Libraries. Its goals are to: ​

  • Provide opportunities for meeting persons who share an interest in and enthusiasm for books, libraries, and reading.​
  • Encourage and attract gifts in the form of bequests, endowments, books, manuscripts, and other appropriate materials.​
  • Involve individuals in the Chicago area in library programs and activities.​
  • Foster an understanding of and appreciation for all Loyola University Chicago’s Libraries and their special collections.​
  • Underscore the importance of Loyola University Chicago’s Libraries in fulfilling the University’s mission.
