Freunde und Förderer (Friends and Sponsors) der HLB Fulda e.V.

The Freunde und Förderer der Hochschul- und Landesbibliothek Fulda e.V. (Friends and Sponsors of the HLB Fulda e.V.) was formed in 1992 as a charitable organisation, with the aim of supporting and sponsoring certain areas of what was then the Hessen State Library, now the University and State Library in Fulda (HLB Fulda):

  • To make its expensive, old collections more accessible to the interested public,
  • To develop the library’s role as a lending library offering a modern service and current literature, and therefore, increasing the library’s cultural role in the region,
  • To guarantee the library’s function as a scientific library through close cooperation with other scientific and educational bodies in the region,
  • To give the library a greater public persona through public lectures, readings, music evenings and discussion rounds, and to gain new users and spark interest,
  • To increase the significance of the book as a cultural and educational artefact and to encourage reading,
  • To stimulate, encourage and support library projects (e.g. book sponsorships, journal sponsorships)

Membership costs 20 euro per year.
