Giving to the Library

Invest in Academic Excellence

The Z. Smith Reynolds Library is the heart and center for academic excellence on campus. During the academic year, the library is filled with members of the campus community either studying, seeking information or materials, going to a class or lecture, coming to get their computer repaired at The Bridge, or simply seeking solace in a cup of coffee. By investing in ZSR, your gift – no matter the size – will have considerable impact on the entire campus community.

We encourage you to make a gift to the one of the following funds supporting the Z. Smith Reynolds Library today.

Help us support and further the education of one of ZSR’s greatest assets, our student workers. Your support will reward exceptional student workers for their dedication and contribution to ZSR Library‚Äôs above-and-beyond spirit.

ZSR Library Student Employee Scholarship Fund

A gift to the ZSR Annual Fund supports the overall academic mission of the library. Gifts to the annual fund have allowed us to add smart lockers for after hours pick-ups to our 24/7 study room, refresh technology, and upgrade furniture in study areas.
