Friends of the Library

Become a supporter of one of The University of Scranton's greatest resources. The Weinberg Memorial Library, built in 1992, is the intellectual hub of the University. It continues to provide traditional library services and meets the needs of 21st century scholarship by collecting, in addition to print materials, an increasingly wide range of digital materials.

Members of the Friends group enjoy fellowship with those who value the importance of libraries and learning, and are committed to helping the library excel in meeting the dynamic scholarly, cultural and social endeavors of the University and the community at large.
