The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Memorial Library was dedicated on September 25, 1992. Thirty years later, the Library remains at the heart of The University of Scranton and is one of the leading libraries in Northeast Pennsylvania. As we embark on the 30th Anniversary of the Weinberg Memorial Library, we ask that you consider supporting the Library in its mission to provide superior resources, services, and programs that meet the dynamic and diverse scholarly, cultural, and social needs of the University and area community.
Each donation to the Library’s 30th Anniversary fund will help us improve the Library’s many spaces, which will directly enhance student learning and further grow our commitment to providing resources and services to the community. All gifts to the 30th Anniversary fund will help modernize the Library while allowing us to continue utilizing our annual operating budget to fund resources for student, faculty, and community learning and scholarship.
Some notable Library initiatives include being a hub for Bike Scranton, providing book borrowing privileges for Lackawanna County Library Card holders and Friends of the Library members, acquiring CloudSource OA to provide e-resources to the local community, supporting Affordable Learning initiatives for Scranton students, instructing area secondary school students on how to utilize the Weinberg Memorial Library’s resources, and hosting free-to-attend public events such as the Environmental Art Show and exhibits hosted by the McHugh Family Special Collections.
Donations of any amount will help us meet our goal of being the area’s premier Library for academic research, preservation, accessibility, sustainability, and lifelong learning. The Weinberg Memorial Library also seeks to complete larger projects that can be funded as named gifts. For more information or to donate, please visit our website or contact George Aulisio, Dean of the Library, at 570-941-7816 or by email.
Even if you are unable to contribute to our 30th Anniversary fund at this time, we invite you to utilize the Weinberg Memorial Library. We are grateful for our thriving community of Library users!
Due to water entering the building, Library services are suspended for the remainder of the evening on June 1, 2022. The Reilly Learning Commons, 2nd, and 3rd floors continue to be accessible to active Royal Card holders.
Throughout Finals Week the Library will be providing coffee and cookies. The coffee and cookies are located on a table in the Reilly Learning Commons and Aramark will be replenishing the supplies multiple times per day to keep up with demand!
For Finals Week remember to study, stay energized, and be well!
Today is the day that The University of Scranton Celebrates 5.06, our 8th Annual Day of Giving!
The focus of this year’s Day of Giving is on Student Scholarships, and I’d like to call your attention to two funds:
The Sara Farrell Hutchison ’08 Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to non-traditional female students studying in any of the health-related fields. Marian Farrell Ph.D., Professor of Nursing, is offering to match each dollar raised, up to $25,000, to the scholarship she initiated in her daughter’s memory.
The Opening Doors Scholarship Fund allows students from the Cristo Rey Network of High Schools to attend the University at no cost. Jim Slattery ’86 has offered to match the first $25,000 donated to the scholarship.
Additional gifts can also be made to the Weinberg Memorial Library. Please select Other and enter either the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library or the Library 30th Anniversary Fund.
Gifts to the Friends of the Library will go toward the endowment and become part of the regular spending plan of the Friends, which supports collections, resources, and services. Gifts to the 30th Anniversary Fund will go toward more immediate building updates to help improve the student experience.
As a thank you for your generosity, every gift gets a free pennant!
