The purpose of the Augustana Library Associates is to be a support group for the Mikkelsen Library. The Library Associates will strengthen the financial base of the library to promote the expansion of library holdings and services and to enhance opportunities for academic excellence. Additionally, the Library Associates will provide a program of cultural events and continuing education for the benefit of members, the college and the community.
The Augustana Library Associates has a membership of more than 500. Members of Library Associates receive discounted admission to Library Associates events as well as library privileges. A membership/library card will be issued upon request. This entitles the holder to the regular four-week loan period for books, CDs, and government documents. Videos and DVDs are loaned for 7 days. Members may also request up to 10 interlibrary loans during the membership year.
