The Friends of the Library

FOL Logo

The Friends of the Library supports the academic mission of Washington and Lee University through activities which strengthen the Library's collections and services, promote greater awareness of the Library's needs and resources, encourage monetary or in-kind contributions to the Library, foster closer community and Library relations, and stimulate the intellectual life of the community.

The Friends association allows those who love the library to meet and share their ideas and suggestions and to introduce others to its treasures.
