Friends of the Library
In 1977 the Friends of the UNO Library began raising money by selling hot dogs at UNO’s April Fest. The fund-raising continued, with used books quickly replacing hot dogs as the merchandise. Now there are two used book sales each academic year, an annual raffle, and other fund-raising activities. Each year the Friends raise thousands of dollars for new library materials and to help support staff development. Our goals are:
  • To support the UNO Library as an essential part of the university, raising funds and encouraging gifts to enhance its collections;
  • To support the development of library services, facilities, and human resources;
  • To provide a medium through which members can share their enthusiasm for books and the library;
  • To sponsor and support lectures and other events appropriate to the aims of the library.
