2024 Membership renewal letters will be mailed in November!

We've changed our membership cycle. Memberships are now on the calendar year from January through December.

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.

Please join us today!
