MSU Library
Meet four MSU students who love the library but think it could use your support

MSU Library is pleased to be part of Giving Day. With over 900,000 user visits each year, the library is a focal point on campus.

 

The current building was built in 1949 and was expanded in 1961, when MSU had just 4,300 students, Today, there are over 16,000 students. Throughout the day students crowd the building, seeking a mix of collaborative, solitary, and social spaces, but the demand is much greater than the current building provides. Students tell us they love the library, but there’s just not enough of it. You might say the library is being “loved to death.”

 

Will you show MSU Library some love during Giving Day? Your generous support will help MSU Library grow with the university by upgrading spaces and adding more furniture, providing additional electrical outlets, creating more group study spaces, and adding artwork and improving the ambiance on the second floor.
