The Friends of the Allan Hancock College Library was formed in Spring 2000 as part of the Allan Hancock College Foundation. Its mission is to enhance existing and planned library resources and programs, and to serve as partners in fostering appreciation for the library.
Why be a Friend?
The Friends of the Allan Hancock College Library provide vital ongoing support for the AHC Library. The funds raised through contributions, donations, and special events enable the library to expand the educational resources offered to students and the community.
The primary goal of the Friends is to raise funds for materials, projects, and services that exceed the resources of the library budget. Other goals include:
- Fostering enthusiasm for the library and strengthening ties to the community.
- Encouraging bequests and gifts to the library.
- Sponsoring special events and programs that enhance the awareness of the library.
- Supporting the literary works of students, faculty, and staff of Allan Hancock College.
