Did you know that online access to a periodical can cost up to $5,000?  A tablet with interactive app capability costs $800?  Or that a research discovery database costs $3,735?   It takes $5,000 to digitize 650 theses; we have 23,350 theses in the Library to go.

Libraries have evolved to become more than simply book stacks.  They are a place where information is accessed via a variety of means.  They are a place for quiet study – but also a place for collaboration.  Your support is critical to ensure that we can meet our students’ informational needs.  The Kettering University library is not only a keeper of past knowledge but the gateway to future innovation.

Please help us raise $5,000 between February 12 and February 19, 2016.  Your donations up to $2,500 will be matched by members of the Friends of the Library and Archives Board.Gifts of all amounts collectively make an important difference. Love Your Library-- It's Long Overdue!

The Kettering Library is Feeling Your Love!

Thank you so much for your contribution to the Kettering Library!

In just one week, we successfully raised nearly $5,000 that will be put to good use enhancing library services and information technology. We couldn't have done this without you and your gift will make a difference in the daily lives of Kettering students.

As Andrew Carnegie once said, "A Library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It's a never failing spring in the desert."

Thank you for being a part of such an important cornerstone in the Kettering community.
