UMKC Friends of the Library donate $25,000

Since 1966, UMKC Friends of the Library (FOL) have presented the UMKC University Libraries and the UMKC community with an Annual Gift for the purchase of library collections and various resources. The Friends of the Library Annual Gift is made possible through endowment distributions.We are thankful that they continue to provide funds for library collections each year. 

We are excited to announce that this year the FOL voted to donate $25,000 to the UMKC University Libraries to be spent in various areas that have typically been funded by the FOL including but not limited to; Film & Video Streaming, Diversity Initiatives, Music Score Collections, as well as to purchase JSTOR Arts & Sciences XIV (covering archaeology, Asian Studies, Education, Languages & Literature, Law and Political Science).  We are tremendously grateful for the annual gift from the FOL and their ongoing support of the UMKC University Libraries and the community we serve.
