Enroll today to become a member of the Friends of Laupus Library for 2011.
For over 40 years Laupus Library has served a large and diverse constituency of students, researchers, practitioners and citizens of Eastern North Carolina. Unlike schools and colleges at East Carolina University, we do not have alumni to whom we can turn for advocacy and continuing support. In July of 2009, the Friends of Laupus Library was established in an effort to enhance our mission of providing access to quality information for healthcare education, service and research in Eastern North Carolina. The purpose of Friends is to provide much needed advocacy and support of the Library, the health sciences community and East Carolina University through participation in Friends programs, special events and awareness activities.
The Friends plan to sponsor several activities, events and educational programs throughout the 2011 year. During the summer and fall months of 2011, Laupus Library will host the textiles exhibit “Wearing Our Insides Out: Women’s Health and Art,” followed by a traveling exhibition from the National Library of Medicine entitled “Binding Wounds: African American Medicine during the Civil War.” Both programs offer many educational opportunities of interest and benefit to the constituents of the Library as well as the community of eastern North Carolina. In November of 2011, the Friends will co-sponsor the 6th Annual Health Sciences Author Recognition Awards program to highlight the publishing achievements of the staff and faculty from the Division of Health Sciences at East Carolina University. We received many kind comments from our 2010 program and are pleased to continue this hallmark event for 2011.
We invite you to join the Friends to help ensure these and other programs held annually. We offer membership at a wide variety of levels and methods of payment, including payroll deduction. Become a member at the Principal Level for as little as $2.08 per pay period, Distinguished Level for $10.41 per pay period, or Special Level for $41.66 per pay period. Individuals and/or couples giving a total of at least $1000 through July of 2012 will be designated as a Founding Friend on a special donor board. For enrollment and other information about the Friends of Laupus Library please visit our website at: www.ecu.edu/LaupusLibrary/Friends.
We hope you will join us in this important endeavor. As a member you will enjoy fellowship with other Friends and learn more about the contributions of Laupus Library to the growth and success of the medical and health sciences community at East Carolina University and throughout eastern North Carolina.
We look forward to you joining us.
