JMU Libraries
Making the Impossible Simple

“Libraries and librarians make the impossible simple, the undoable achievable, the inaccessible delivered right to your department mailbox.” 

—Tim LaPira, JMU Professor of Political Science

Your gift to the Libraries General Fund will support professors such as Tim LaPira, who depend on our robust collections, speedy delivery service, software, and other resources to further their scholarly work. We also offer professors our award-winning expertise in technology-enhanced teaching, instructional design, textbook affordability, and so much more.

JMU students like Industrial Design major Quinn Gagne will benefit directly from your gift to the Libraries. Quinn, who invented and 3D printed shoes in our makerspace for a class project, is one of many students who rely on Libraries equipment and expert advice to accomplish their creative and academic goals.

The Libraries’ efforts to make learning more affordable and accessible for all Dukes will also be bolstered by your gift. Finally, our hardworking student employees will benefit from scholarships made possible by supporters like you.

While the JMU Libraries cannot make all impossible things simple, we strive to empower all Dukes to take their ideas from possibility to reality.

Your support means the world to us—and to the students, faculty, and staff who we are privileged to work with every day.
