Library Friends & Donors

Honor Roll of Donors

For many years, the Library has benefited from the generosity of scores of individuals who have donated funds, works of art, as well as materials for our collections and our annual book sale. We are indebted to our Friends of the Library for their generous donations.

Library Volunteers

UW-Waukesha has also been the beneficiary of many wonderful volunteers who give countless hours of their valuable time each year to Library and Media Services. Library Volunteers help us with a variety of critical tasks including new and gift book processing, inventory, shelving, and many special projects. Our current volunteers are listed below.

Library Book Sale

The Library receives collections of donated materials from friends and alumni throughout the year. Donated items that are not added to the collections of the UW Colleges libraries are, with the donor's permission, typically included as part of our ongoing book sale which is organized and run by the UW-Waukesha Foundation and the Friends of the Library.

Opportunities for Enrichment

  • Honor – Donors may give a one time or occasional monetary gift in honor of an individual. A bookplate with appropriate acknowledgment will be affixed to each item.

Student Government Association/SUFAC Gifts
