The Friends of Cambridge University Library is a society founded to foster contacts between the Library and those interested in its collections, its history, its current activities, and its future development. The Friends’ principal stated aims are to raise funds for the purchase and conservation of significant additions to the Library’s collections, and to assist the Library to acquire such items by gift or bequest.

Besides the satisfaction of contributing to the Library’s collections, Friends receive several important benefits in return for their subscriptions. A programme of meetings, outings, visits to Library departments and talks on varied topics runs throughout the year, and members are most welcome to attend regular, exclusive, private views of new Library exhibitions. The Bulletin of the Friends, containing articles and notes about both Library and Society, is distributed regularly to members, who also receive copies of the Library Syndicate’s annual report to the University. Most Library publications are available to individual Friends at a 20% discount.
