1998 Friends of the Library Endowment Gifts

As Chair of the Friends of the Weinberg Advisory Council, I am very pleased to announce the 1998 Friends of the Library gifts for the Weinberg Library. The hard work and dedication of the Friends of the Library organization in building the Friends endowment reaped great benefits this year- Endowment earnings of $1000 were used to purchase a wide array of titles from reference books to Special Collections gems. Titles were selected by the Friends Gift Selection Committee and the Library faculty.
