For more than 65 years, the Friends of the University of Delaware Library (formerly the University of Delaware Library Associates), through its dedicated members, has provided more than $2.5 million in financial support to the University of Delaware Library, mainly its Special Collections. The generosity of these members, coupled with the hard work of Library staff, have resulted in an extraordinary selection of highly admired rare materials, books and artifacts. These materials serve as an invaluable resource for academic study and scholarly research by which University students, faculty and the general public use and benefit greatly.
