Donate money for the Homies: Friends of HBL

Support the Open Education Resources (OER) Initiative, Library Events, and Service Projects

Homies: Friends of the Homer Babbidge Library (HBL) A Project of Ignite 2017

UConn Libraries is central to life and research at the University of Connecticut. It serves as an employer, a study space, a hangout zone, a warehouse of mentors, and for many, a home away from home.

Funds go to group activities and library initiatives (such as Open Education Resources) which promote the libraries & literacy to the student body and to the community.

All money raised, regardless of amount will support the Fund of the University Libraries.

Watch our video to hear more from students about why they love the library!

"I love the library because I think it is one of the most fundamental institutions for preserving democracy and the freedom of ideas."
- Samantha Mairson, Digital Media and Design, Class of 2017, President of the Homies: Friends of HBL
