Let’s be Friends!

The Friends of the Carlyle Campbell Library is actively seeking new members and we are hoping you will become our next “friend”! The Friends’ mission is to promote, support, and encourage the services and interests of the Library. The group strives to build a strong relationship between the Library and members of the Meredith community, as well as the communities that surround Meredith’s campus.

We accomplish this by financially supporting library special projects that improve the learning experience for students, faculty, and staff and by hosting regular events with prominent authors and speakers. Some of our recent speakers have included the novelists Allan Gurganus and Wilton Barnhardt, and food journalists Andrea Weigl and Bridgette Lacy along with chef Bill Smith.

By becoming a member of the Friends of the Carlyle Campbell Library, you ensure that the Library can provide the best services to both current and future Meredith students. The Friends recently funded the purchase of a new graphic novel collection as a part of the Library trending reads section and will now support the upgrade of one of the library’s group study rooms. Both of these projects, and the many others that the Friends have supported, greatly impact the library experience of our students!

In addition to aiding our students, you get to enjoy the many benefits of becoming a member. Benefits include: invitations to Friends’ events twice a year, reduced fees for Friends’ events, and borrowing privileges at the College Library. Please consider joining today, knowing you will be contributing to the growth and vitality of Meredith.
