Title:The library and its friends
Author(s):Holley, Edward G.
Subject(s):Friends of the library
Abstract:As cultural and educational institutions, libraries have, from the very beginning of their existence in this country, enjoyed the encouragement and support of a host of friends. This has been true no less for public institutions than for private institutions. It is clear from any reading of the historical record that important libraries do not come into being without the vision, imagination, and determination of individuals who not only give support themselves, but also encourage others to do so. This tradition of contributing books, and funds for books, has an especially long history in higher education as demonstrated most clearly in two of the country's oldest universities Yale and Harvard.
