The Friends of the Michael Schwartz Library at Cleveland State University is closely associated with the Michael Schwartz Library but is an independent organization whose purpose is to support the library in a number of different ways. By sponsoring programs of interest to faculty, students, and the general public, we hope to attract favorable attention for the library and interest in its activities.
We encourage both monetary and in-kind gifts to the library, particularly special collections materials with strong links to the Cleveland area. The Friends also accept both monetary and in-kind gifts, especially gifts of books. These books may be sold, given to the Michael Schwartz Library if librarians determine that they are appropriate for the collection, or given to other organizations. Our programs also provide continuing social and intellectual interaction between the University and the community.
