Friends of the Carlyle Campbell Library: Membership

Join the Friends of the Carlyle Campbell Library


Friends logo

The following membership categories are available:

  • Student Member ($10): for current students
  • Contributing Member ($25)
  • Family Contributing Member ($40): allows an additional family member to enjoy the benefits of Friends membership.
  • Sustaining Member ($100): for those who wish to make a contribution over and above regular memberships. Sustaining members receive two dinner tickets each year, to be used during the year.**Per IRS guidelines, we estimate the fair market value of dinner tickets to be $44 (two tickets at $22 each). Meredith College is a 501(c)(3) public charity; therefore, Sustaining Members may claim a donation deduction for $66, the difference between your $100 contribution and the value of the benefits you received.

  • Life Member ($500): may be made in one payment or installments within one membership year.  To set up installments, use and specify Friends of the Library as the designation, or call the Institutional Advancement Office (919-760-8374) to get the payments set up.
  • Life Family Membership ($750): allows two family members to receive life membership for one payment.  Existing life members may add a family member for $250.
