Giving to the Library

The Library puts the powers of knowledge and creation directly in student hands through scholarly collections, historical materials reflecting the people and places of the North Bay, and innovative services such as the SSU Makerspace. Donating to the Library on Giving Day helps us continue to cultivate curiosity, connect students to cutting-edge technology, and promote lifelong learning.
