RE-IMAGINING HU Libraries and Moorland-Spingarn

The Founders Library, the Undergraduate Library and the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center (MSRC) are being completely re-imagined for the 21st century!  Friends of the Howard University Libraries System and the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center will play a significant role in bringing these changes about as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Founders Library and the 100th anniversary of MSRC.  Stay tuned to learn more about the Centennial Club and TeamFounders, all part of the Howard University Libraries Capital Campaign coming soon.

Welcome Home Alumni

Join the Friends of the Howard University Libraries System and the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center

Friends come together for Author Talks, Book Signings, Academic Programs, Community Service, Theater Outings, and Scholarship Fundraising.  They also develop the financial resources needed to improve facilities and resources for Founders Library and the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center.

 From the Library's humble beginning in 1867, the Library's philosophy has remained unchanged:  to help people learn. The Friends are dedicated to the Library and the Archives' mission to provide the highest standards in service and resources that support the University's mission for excellence in learning and teaching, scholarship, and service.

Friends are alumni, students, faculty and staff of Howard University and others in the community who share a love for knowledge and a desire to promote the vital role the University Libraries and the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center play in the academic life of the University and in society.  Friends also provide financial support for resources and services that benefit learners in the University community and at-large.

    Autumn

    Thanksgiving Time
     gif
    by Langston Hughes (1921)

    When the night winds whistle through the trees and blow the crisp brown leaves a-crackling down,
    When the autumn moon is big and yellow-orange and round,
    When old Jack Frost is sparkling on the ground,
        It’s Thanksgiving Time!

    When the pantry jars are full of mince-meat and the shelves are laden with sweet spices for a cake,
    When the butcher man sends up a turkey nice and fat to bake,
    When the stores are crammed with everything ingenious cooks can make,
        It’s Thanksgiving Time!

    When the gales of coming winter outside your window howl,
    When the air is sharp and cheery so it drives away your scowl, 
    When one’s appetite craves turkey and will have no other fowl,
        It’s Thanksgiving Time!
     

    Give your support

    Every gift makes a difference. Support your Alma Mater in sustaining a rich tradition in its mission in preparing the best and brightest professional leaders in the world.
