Give to K-State Libraries

What will learning look like in the next century? As teaching moves beyond books to include “intelligent” networks, multi-media textbooks and caffeine-fueled online collaboration, K-State libraries are navigating that future now.

Hale the heart of campus

Hale Library suffered a catastrophic loss due to an accidental fire in 2018. Thanks to the generosity of K-Staters and friends, Hale, the heart of campus, was rebuilt to serve generations of students and faculty at Kansas State University.

A powerful 21st century resource

We’ve moved beyond the book! Students now have K-State library access to 3-D printers, virtual reality, multi-media equipment and much more as they prepare for a lifetime of success in our connected world.

Though K-State Libraries is a 21st century library system, the central mission to support teaching and research has not changed from its beginning.

How you can invest in the heart of the university:

  • Collections. K-State Libraries align their collections of online and printed resources with the university’s teaching and research priorities.  
  • Facilities. Libraries must continuously upgrade and redesign facilities, so they are flexible and functional for current and future generations.
  • Other opportunities. Opportunities include position endowments, support for digital initiatives, research scholarships and professional development.
