UMass Amherst Libraries

“The only thing you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.” Albert Einstein


It’s pure genius to give to the Libraries. If you want to make the broadest impact with your giving, support the most visited place on campus. When you support the Libraries, each dollar increases students’ access to knowledge. You enable the Libraries to renew learning spaces, set trends in technology, and deliver the richest resources to our students and to the Commonwealth.


We thank you -- because of your philanthropy, UMass Amherst has a great Library.
