Murphy Library has been proudly serving students at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse for over 50 years...but we are starting to show our age. Without a budget increase in over 20 years, the library has prioritized providing high quality resources, technology, and services to our campus community. This has left little, if any, funds for our most used yet underfunded resource – our study spaces. From furniture that has lived here since our doors opened in 1968, to a lack of power outlets in our study spaces, the library is in need of a refresh. In response, we are trying something new. Murphy Library has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds and purchase resources like furniture and power hubs that will better address the technological and collaborative needs of today’s UWL student. This is where you can help!
By donating to our crowdfunding campaign, you can help us provide current and future UWL students with essential learning tools to help them fly like an Eagle! If you’re able, we would love if you could make a donation of $10.00, although donations of any size will have a great impact!
Even if you are unable to donate, you can still support this fundraising effort by sharing our crowdfunding website with your friends and family on your social media channels. Your support is crucial to our efforts to better serve our students.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. Your donation will go toward the purchase of contemporary furniture, tools, and supplies to help our students succeed.
