Books have long been regarded by many people as friends, but as an old adage says, "in order to have a friend, you have to be one."
Many books in the MU Libraries are fragile, others need minor repairs, still others require extensive help if they are to survive this century. Those of us who consider books our friends cannot bear to lose them, and it is in that spirit that the Friends of the MU Libraries have initiated the Adopt-A-Book Program. By adopting a book, you will ensure that it gets the help it needs to remain with us for years to come.
Please consider sponsoring a book. All monies will go directly to the care and maintenance of rare, fragile and just plain good books.
