Members of the Friends of the Princeton University Library make a vital contribution to the strength of the University’s collections, to the educational experience of its students, and to scholars and collectors throughout the world.
Friends of the Library receive a Newsletter and three issues of The Princeton University Library Chronicle. The Chronicle publishes articles of scholarly importance in the humanities or social sciences, reports on rare or unique materials in the Library, and essays on books or book collecting—all written for the general reader.
Friends are invited to participate in a variety of activities and events during the academic year, including exhibition openings, lectures and talks, gala dinners, workshops on topics such as preservation, bookbinding, and print collecting, and special events for members only, including trips, performances and workshops for children in the Cotsen Children's Library, and backstage tours of Library services and facilities.
Membership is for 12 months, concurrent with the University's fiscal year, beginning July 1. Renewal notices are mailed in the autumn.
