The Friends of the Library & Gallery share a mutual interest in the continuing development of the collections and programs. The Friends contribute invaluable support for the general collection, the Special Collections, the Library Gallery, and cultural programs. Volunteers assist in organizing events and publications, participate in the Library's outreach to the community, raise funds, and may serve on the the Friends Council, which governs the organization (see our By-Laws for more information).

Sorry, no upcoming events
There are several ways to support the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery. You can donate to an endowment fund, a spending account, or a particular project. To learn more about these options, please continue to our Donations page.
As of July 1, 2017 the Kuhn Library will discontinue accepting donations of general collection materials. However, Special Collections will continue to accept donations of photography materials, Special Collections materials, as well as archival books and materials.
Due to the ever increasing costs associated with the short-term and long-term storage of gifts and the associated resources required to sort, review, process, preserve, and maintain materials, the Library will cease most general book and media donations as of June 30, 2017.
The Library will continue to accept donations from on-campus offices and current faculty, staff and students. For questions regarding on-campus donation of materials, please contact the Collection Management office at 410-455-2341 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Collections will continue to accept funds and in-kind materials and should be contacted at 410-455-2353 or email@example.com. Please visit the Support Special Collections page for more information.
