Friends of the WWU Libraries

From a few bookshelves in the first Administration Building, to a collection of more than 190,000 books, 1,000 periodical subscriptions, and several full-text, online databases, the Libraries of Walla Walla University have undergone many changes over the past 114 years. Yet, their fundamental purpose remains unchanged: serving the information and research needs of more than 1,900 students, faculty, and staff.

This purpose is realized through several inter-connected libraries, which comprise the Libraries of WWU. These include Peterson Memorial Library (the main campus library), the School of Nursing Library in Portland, the Master of Social Work Library in Missoula, the Curriculum Library, and the Rosario Marine Station collection.

The Friends of the WWU Libraries Fund has been established to help these libraries continue their mission. Your gifts to the Friends of the WWU Libraries Fund provide a source of income, beyond the regular materials budget, designated specifically for strengthening and enriching the collections of the Walla Walla University Libraries. Resources will support teaching and researching across all
disciplines.
