Give to the Library

We've built the library of the future. Now it's time to consider the future of the library.

‌Why Your Donation is Important

A great university must have a great library. Kelvin Smith Library is a splendid building standing proudly at the heart of campus. Hailed as the library of the future when it opened in 1996, KSL has successfully transformed itself in the digital age. Combining both traditional and electronic access, the library provided access to over 1.7 million volumes of books and nearly 2 million uses of electronic resources this past year. Your donation can help Kelvin Smith Library remain committed to providing information for generating and disseminating knowledge at Case Western Reserve University.
