Who are the Friends?

Friends of EKU Libraries are individuals who believe in the difference libraries make in the lives of students and choose to support EKU Libraries with annual gifts, endowments and legacy gifts.  Over the past few years, our Friends have made possible:

The Silent Study Zone

A scholarship for excellent library student employees

The Library Student Art Exhibit Award

Programming opportunities like the Live @ Your Library series and the Friends Annual Celebration

The Future Colonels project

Digitization of the historic Eastern Progress

Dewey, a golf cart to facilitate the quick delivery of Library Express materials all across campus

The Noel Studio for Academic Creativity

Artwork by Kentucky artists in the Main Library

...and more!
