2024 Membership renewal letters will be mailed in December!

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!


Friends of the UNO Library Spring used book sale, April 18-20, 2024, on the 4th floor of the UNO Library.


If you have books you'd like to donate for the sale, please call UNO Library Admin at (504) 280-6556.

If you would like to donate books to the UNO Library, contact the Friends of the Library at 504-280-6556 or through their Facebook page.  While some titles that match the library's collecting parameters may be added to the library collection, most donated books will go to the Friends of the Library book sale.  Proceeds from the book sale support purchase of new materials and equipment as well as professional development opportunities for library staff.
