About Friends of The Bancroft Library

Who We Are, What We Do

There are about 1,500 of us now who are dedicated to supporting and developing this world-famous University of California, Berkeley campus collection, which is open without charge to everyone engaged in relevant research

Only with the Friends contributions has Bancroft been able to augment its limited funds to acquire, preserve, and display rare books, manuscripts, maps, pictures, and other materials. When an important work or collection becomes available, often only the Friends are able to secure its acquisition through a "seed payment" or with a contribution matched by a foundation grant.

The University provides some basic funds to maintain Bancroft, but it cannot furnish all the support Bancroft needs for staffing, acquisitions, and such essential services as conservation, binding rare books, and restoring paintings。 The Friends programs of lectures, receptions, exhibitions, and publications are paid for entirely from private contributions。

We ask you to help this important institution by becoming a member of the Friends of The Bancroft Library, and we invite you to participate in its stimulating programs.

Benefits of Being a Friend of The Bancroft Library 

As a Friend you will become identified with the work of this great library and kept in touch with its activities through the lively newsletter Bancroftiana.

In addition, for every year that you donate $250 or more, you will receive a Keepsake, a handsomely printed volume or portfolio that is often the first publication of a unique artifact, manuscript, or rare document owned by The Bancroft Library.
