Friends of the Library

The Friends sponsor an exciting series of programs and events featuring prominent researchers at Dartmouth.

Established in 1938 by Dartmouth Professor Herbert Falkner West, the Friends have been a source of enrichment to our resources ever since. Our Friends regularly enjoy lectures and other programming that exposes them to the research nurtured by the rich holdings of the Dartmouth College Library, holdings they help to create. All Friends sponsored events are free and open to the public.
