Founded in 1958, the Library Associates works to expand and enrich the research collections of the University of Delaware Library through gifts from individual members, funds raised by the Library Associates' programs and donations of significant books.

Each year contributions of the University of Delaware Library Associates assist financially with the acquisition of rare library materials, sponsor an exhibition opening reception and an exhibition publication to promote Special Collections, support a June lecture program in the Morris Library featuring the research of a UD faculty member and sponsor an annual dinner that includes a presentation by an author of regional or national acclaim.

Members also receive a semiannual Newsletter of the University of Delaware Library Associates, exhibition catalogs and an occasional journal called Collections.

The next annual dinner will be held May 1, and will feature Stacy Schiff, award-winning author of Vera, who will speak and sign copies of her book.
