Support the Halle Library


Why Support the Library

The University Library has always served as an integral part in the lives of students and faculty - a quiet sanctuary, a place for the exchange of ideas, a source of knowledge and information, and a place to explore new learning technologies. The library creates a high-tech, high-touch environment to support teaching, learning and research. Our librarians are available for consultation both in the Halle Library and on the web. You can help enrich the educational experience for current and future generations by giving to the EMU library. Eastern University is a 501(c) (3) non-profit institution. Your gift to the University Library is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. A receipt will be issued for your gift.

Monetary Gifts

A donation to the Library helps our efforts to fulfill the vision of providing collections, programs and leadership to further promote research and information-based activities at the core of the EMU mission. You can contribute your gift to a designated fund for a specific purpose. Several donors have also created a special fund in their name to be used for designated purposes. If you are interested in creating such a fund, please contact Susan Rink, Director of Legacy Giving at the EMU Foundation at [email protected] or 734.487.5634 or visit the EMU Foundation's website on planned giving
