Become a Library Associate

The Stetson University Library Associates is a special group of individuals and organizations pledged to support the resources, services, and facilities of the duPont-Ball Library at Stetson University. As we continue to develop our electronic and physical collections and services for the University community, your support will be critical.

In addition to giving to the Library Enhancement, Materials, or General Endowment funds, all listed on the Pledge of Support Form, we have a list of additional Donor Opportunities that may be of interest.

Why Become a Stetson Library Associate?

You can make a difference for students by supporting the library goals:

  • to be the central intellectual meeting place on campus

Gifts to the library through your membership make it possible to purchase research materials, provide appropriate technology, and purchase enhancements to make the library more conducive to study and research.

In addition, you will receive:

  • Two Library Newsletters each year (mailed to Associates and also available on our website) to keep you aware of Library services and activities
  • Invitations to special events and receptions with University faculty, staff, and friends
  • Access to the library’s collections.

Associate level ($35 – $99):
