Support K-State Libraries

Support the Libraries

Donor support is vital to the success of K-State Libraries. Our library system supports the teaching, learning and research activities of the entire university.

Ninety percent of our budget is allocated for salaries and collections, while the remaining 10 percent must cover all of our other operating expenditures. Without donor support, many impactful programs and initiatives would simply not be possible.

Donate to the Libraries

Donor support allows us to:

  • Update technology and furniture to enhance student study spaces.
  • Purchase additional materials for our collections.
  • Digitize historical materials.
  • Create research awards and scholarships.
  • Advance our open textbook initiatives to save students millions.
  • And so much more!
