The Mission

The mission of the Friends of the John B. Coleman Library is to contribute funds for acquisitions and special projects; to encourage and facilitate gifts; to promote awareness of the Library’s resources and services; and to organize programs of literacy to support the Library.

WHY SUPPORT THE JOHN B. COLEMAN LIBRARY?

The Library is essential to the intellectual vitality of the University and draws talented students and faculty to the Prairie View A&M University campus. The Library is central to the University’s mission of teaching, research and public service; and is the one unit on campus that benefits all academic disciplines.

As the Library adapts to meet new challenges, private support is more important than ever before. The library of tomorrow offers innovative methods for teaching, research, and learning; and provides immediate and easy access to its collections and services. The contributions of Friends of the John B. Coleman Library help the Library acquire new resources, preserve existing materials, and keep pace with cutting-edge technologies that offer multiple formats and improved access to information.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN THE FRIENDS OF THE JOHN B. COLEMAN LIBRARY?

As a member of the Friends, your support of the Library will provide patrons expanded access to books and manuscripts, computers and software, online resources, and improved library spaces. Your contribution will help us build our digital initiative to knowledge, transform our physical spaces, and preserve our paper-based collections.

All gifts to the Library are tax deductible as defined by law. All donors to any area of the Library are considered Friends of the Library, regardless of the designated purpose of their gift. Friends’ donations, memberships, and volunteer time are invested in many activities to promote the library on campus and in the community.

Your gift is a vote of confidence and it is one of the best investments you can make in higher education.

Membership in the Friends of the John B. Coleman Library is extended on an annual basis for the period January 1 – December 31 to those persons contributing $25.00 or more.

Your membership includes a subscription to the Coleman Library Connection newsletter, invitations to occasional library events and an informative gift bookmark.
