Waring Historical Library Renovation Fund

Giving to the Waring Historical Library Renovation Fund supports the needed structural updates to the Waring to continue to preserve the building and the collection. Although it is one of the oldest buildings on campus, the Waring Historical Library has not received any apparent structural attention since the university acquired it in the 1960s. Given its historical significance and the value of its collections, we are increasingly concerned about the building’s declining condition. To learn more about the project, visit the Waring Historical Library Renovation Fund page.
