THE HEART OF SMITH
POWER NEILSON LIBRARY: WHERE TEACHING, LEARNING AND COMMUNITY UNITE.

More than just a building, Neilson Library is where ideas take flight. This is why it is so critical that Neilson keep up with the needs and expectations of students and scholars today and in the future. We are in the midst of an extensive library renovation project led by acclaimed designer Maya Lin that will embody Smith’s bold vision for the 21st century, creating new opportunities for intellectual exploration, innovation and discovery.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting project by donating during the month of June. Gifts will stretch far beyond new desks and bookshelves. They’ll create a space that informs, inspires and unites us all.

LET'S POWER THE NEW NEILSON TOGETHER.

Please give as generously as you can today!



Choose from one of four designations to make your gift today:
