The fulfillment of the Library’s mission is made possible by an annual draw from the yield on its endowment, by grants from numerous foundations and agencies and by gifts from the Library’s Associates, a group with about 850 members from 40 states and 29 foreign countries. The assistance of the Associates is particularly vital since a significant portion of the acquisitions budget is funded by Associate contributions.

Membership in the Associates requires a minimum annual donation of $50.00.*  JCB Associates are entitled to attend lectures, receptions, book launches and social gatherings at the Library, to discounts on some Library publications, and to participate in the Annual Meeting held in the spring.   

For a membership application, contact Maureen O’Donnell at 401-863-1262.

*Note:   there is a special category of membership of $15.00 per year for students.
