President’s Welcome

Ed Fritz

As the president of the Friends of the TCU Library, I am looking forward to an exciting year!

There are so many reasons to be a Friend of the TCU Library. Since 1972, the Friends of the TCU Library have enriched the TCU campus with their generosity. The Friends are dedicated to promoting and elevating the resources, services and operations of the Mary Couts Burnett Library. The Friends organization also provides opportunities for members to get acquainted with each other through a series of programs each year. These events include author visits, faculty presentations, dinner banquets and next year we will host the Texas Book Award Banquet, and various reception events.

If you are not a Friends member now, please consider joining. We fund so many worthwhile projects for the library and would sincerely appreciate you considering becoming a member. Can you ever have “too many friends?” Of course not! Membership forms are available online and in the library.

Here's to another great year, and I hope to see you at the library soon!

Edward Fritz

Friends of the TCU Library was founded in 1972

  • To encourage understanding and appreciation of the work of the main University Library and its special collections.
  • To build up a greater realization of the importance of the Library to the future development of the University.
  • To attract gifts in the forms of bequests, endowments, books, manuscripts, and other appropriate materials beyond the resources of the Library budget.
  • To serve as a medium through which friends of the Library may become acquainted and share their enthusiasm for books.
