Welcome to the CWU
Friends of the Brooks Library!
The CWU Friends of the Library (FOL), established in 1994, helps to ensure that the library remains a vital part of Central Washington University. Our annual newsletters and meetings keep you informed of library events.
Our primary purpose is to raise funds for library acquisitions: books, journals, recordings, musical scores, films, maps, electronic databases. Each fall, the Friends conduct a two-day booksale on the Ellensburg campus. The Friends of the Brooks Library Endowment Fund receives the monies raised by the sale and other events.
To join the Friends in support of the Library, print out and complete the Contribution Form, attach your check and forward to the Friends of the Library at the address provided on the form. We thank everyone who contributes annually in response to our newsletter and who suggests that family and friends donate to the FOL Endowment Fund in memory of deceased loved ones or special individuals.

SECOND LIBRARY GALA
In 2013, the book sale earned $1,228 for the Friends’
endowment fund. This sum represents the enthusiasm of the
customers and the dedication of those who volunteer at the
sale. If you want to donate books for the sale, please contact
Ginny Blackson (963-1306).
The proceeds of the book sale and the generous donations of
library Friends resulted in the transfer or $4,108 to the library
in 2013 for the purchase of materials relating to the emerging
common core curriculum, an upgrade to the music library’s
holdings and the leasing of popular titles for readers’ pleasure
from Baker and Taylor, a way of using the Friends’ funds to
optimal advantage. This year the Fund will transfer $6,117.
The Brooks Library’s first Gala was held on April 12, 2014
and attracted a crowd of university students and staff as well
as community members with their families. View the evening’s
events at www.lib.cwu.edu. This event was a very successful
collaboration, co-sponsored by the Kittitas County Chamber of
Commerce and the Brooks Library. The Friends of the Library
Endowment Fund received $500 from the Gala’s proceeds,
and Jim Brooks generously matched that amount. Friends
interested in helping the Gala to run smoothly in 2015 should
contact Michele Reilly, 963-2117 or email@example.com.
