Students using one of the many group study rooms in the Learning Commons, Du Bois Library


“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, to set trends in technology, and to deliver the riches resources to our students and to our state.


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