The Heart of Smith: Neilson Library

This campaign ended on June 30, 2016, but you can still make a gift to Smith College by clicking here!

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.

The Heart of Smith campaign invites 3,136 Smith alumnae, graduate alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff to join 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.
