VCU Libraries Boards

VCU Libraries works with two volunteer library boards, the Friends of VCU Libraries and the James Branch Cabell Library Associates.

  • The Friends of VCU Libraries Board was founded in 1983 with the mission of strenghtening VCU Libraries resources and services in order to prepare VCU students for a lifetime of learning and to provide scholarly resources for faculty and staff. The board offers advice and support to the libraries' senior staff and sponsors programs and events throughout the year, including the Annual Friends of VCU Libraries Book Sale.
  • The James Branch Cabell Library Associates Board, founded in 1972, promotes the critical study and preservation of the collection of Richmond writer James Branch Cabell, for whom the library building on the Monroe Park campus is named. The board sponsors public programs designed to encourage discussion among audiences of students, faculty, staff and community members. Additionally, the board supports the acquisition and preservation of Cabell-related materials housed in Special Collections and Arcives at Cabell Library.
