Friends of the LSU Libraries

Give to the LSU Libraries / Friends of the LSU Libraries

The Friends of the LSU Libraries was formed on April 7, 1962, and has supported the LSU Libraries for more than five decades. They are perhaps best known for their annual Friends of the LSU Libraries Book Bazaar, with thousands of books of every kind for sale.

Through the generosity of our Friends, we have been able to acquire of a wide variety of materials, ranging from the elephant folio edition of Audubon's Birds of America (below, left) to current ebook packages in the sciences.

The Book Barn

The Friends also operate the Book Barn (3555 River Road), which is open throughout the year for browsing and buying selected books. Plan a visit to find inexpensive textbooks, reference books, and leisure reading.

Book Barn hours are Mondays, 9:00 a.m. - noon and Wednesdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
