The College Library is still central to a great Saint Mary's education. But the world has changed, and our library has changed with it, growing and thriving in a vastly different, largely digital information environment, while also responding to the important traditional values of the College. Your gift will support this dynamic mission and its service to all learners.

The Library's Mission

The Library exists to foster the pursuit of knowledge, intellectual and ethical integrity, excellence in teaching and learning, respect for inquiry and diverse points of view, and dedication to service. The Library collects texts, images and multimedia, and provides connections to global information networks that enhance the curriculum and assist research.

A Vital Resource

Our students, no matter their major, and our local communities need access to the best library resources and expect exceptional service from dedicated staff.  To support the College’s mission to provide a superior educational and research environment, our library must stay current with the technological realities of the 21st century.

Your Support

Make your gift today! Your support will help us fulfill this mission. You can help us connect our students and our community users to a world of information and foster the development of skills that will last a lifetime.
