About Smith Libraries
Smith students and faculty thrive on the exceptional library resources and services that lie at the heart of the Smith experience. Join the hundreds of alumnae and other supporters who help maintain the excellence of Smith’s libraries through philanthropy.
For all non-Special Collections material gifts, including general library books, media, maps, and other non-rare materials that support the curriculum and meet the criteria of the Libraries’ collecting policy are welcome.
Note: Neilson and Science libraries are not accepting gifts until further notice due to the closure of Neilson Library.
For donations of manuscript materials, rare books, and archives, contact Special Collections.
With matching gifts, it is possible to double, triple, or even quadruple your impact. Find out here if your company matches employee charitable contributions.
Library endowments provide a steady stream of income that protects the Smith Libraries in variable economic times. Library endowments provide critical funds as well as honor Smith alumnae and friends. To learn about specific library needs and how to create an endowment contact the Libraries Development Officer, Mary Irwin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
