March 1st kicks off the University of Illinois Springfield’s Faculty & Staff Giving Campaign. The objective is to help raise awareness of what the needs of specific departments are and to inform those interested in donating about how their donations would be used. This years theme is “Be A Hero”. Here at Brookens we’ve interpreted the theme 2 ways: First, we believe are staff are all superheros. Each role is vital to providing the resources and services to the public. Secondly, we think those that help us in that effort through volunteering, support, attending events, advocating on our behalf are also heroes!
Running and maintaining the resources and services of an academic library requires substantial funding. Brookens Library is proud to offer the high quality of electronic and print resources, a large space for patrons to use, and exceptional services. Your support goes a long way – so we would love for you to become a hero and donate! All donation should be made through the foundation office. You can also give to Brookens by becoming a member of the Friends of Brookens Library. To become a friend please contact Marcia Rossi at 217-206-6597.
Interested in attending the campaign kickoff? It’s March 1st from 12:30-1:30 in the PAC lobby. We hope to see you there!
