The Friends of The Burke Library's purposes are to stimulate greater awareness of the Library's importance, to sponsor lectures and other programs, exhibits, and publications, and to encourage support of the Library's future growth.

As a Friend of The Burke Library, you will:

  • receive the Friends semi-annual newsletter
  • enjoy invitations to lectures and special events at the Library
  • have the opportunity to volunteer at the annual booksale, in the preservation lab, and in other areas of the Library
