  • Fundraising

    Library Forum Project

    ACU Library seeks support to fund renovation of the east side of the top floor to create the ACU Library Forum. This area already offers natural lighting and beautiful ACU views from its bay windows and renovations will create more space for solo and group study, departmental gatherings, meetings and conferences.

    Maker Lab Expansion Project

    In an effort to place community and student learning at the heart of design, we aspire to renovate the entire west side of the main floor of the library - offering expansion and enhancement of Maker Lab facilities in order to grow and fully realize a public school outreach program.

    Library Special Collections and Archives

    To support continued growth of its archives, Special Collections is seeking funding to purchase high-density shelving for its collections area. To preserve historic film of church services and television programs broadcast by the Herald of Truth, and to make the programs available for teaching and learning, Special Collections is seeking to fund conversion of at-risk film to digital form.
