Join the Association!


The Library is able to fulfill its mission each year through support from foundations, government agencies, and gifts from the Library’s Association of Friends and Fellows, a group with roughly 500 members from almost all 50 states and many foreign countries. The assistance of the Associates and friends of the Library is particularly vital since a significant portion of our acquisitions budget is funded by these contributions.

Membership in the Association of Friends and Fellows requires a minimum annual donation of $50.00 ($35 for former fellows; $25 for students). JCB Associates (at the $100 level; $50 for former fellows) are invited to attend lectures, receptions, book talks and social gatherings at the Library, and are eligible to receive discounts on some Library publications and to participate in the Associates' Annual Meeting, usually held in the spring.
