Friends of the Library

When founded in 1986, the Friends of the Library was just that, the friends of the singular, neoclassical Starr Library. Today, the Friends of the Middlebury College Library supports multiple physical spaces and abundant archival, print, and digital collections.

The Library provides a vital resource for students, faculty, staff, and almuni, and we rely on the generosity of our Friends and donors to help support our mission. If you are interested in learning more about how you can support us, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All gifts to Middlebury are tax deductible. Annual contributions of $50 or more grant borrowing privileges at the Middlebury College Library. To apply for these borrowing privileges, fill out this Guest Borrower Card Application.
