The Mission of the Friends of Beeghly Library
- The Friends group provides an opportunity for people interested in books, ideas, information and Beeghly Library to get together to share this common interest through activities, programs, and fellowship.
- Members also have the opportunity to promote and enhance the library’s role on campus and in the community by helping to encourage an understanding of the work and mission of the library and its contribution to the college mission.
- The group serves as a catalyst to encourage gifts and donations to enhance the library’s collections, facilities, and programs.
