The Olive Tree
The loyalty, devotion, and generosity of University Alumni, faculty, students,
and friends made possible the construction of this library.
Since the construction of the Raymond H. Fogler Library a half century ago, students, faculty, and visitors have passed by this inscription which adorns the library’s central staircase. These engraved words are both testament and tribute to the many individuals whose outpouring of private support helped to build the University’s library into the foremost center for learning and research in Maine.
The important resources Fogler Library provides to users statewide and the vital part it plays as the heart of Maine’s academic community have long been recognized by alumni and friends. Over the years a number of generous individuals have discreetly continued the tradition established by the Library’s builders. Today, private support to augment public funding is critical as Fogler Library strives to maintain its leadership position in teaching, research, and public service.
This semester we are inviting all UMaine faculty to become part of this tradition by joining the Friends at a special rate of $25. Your gift will help ensure the Library’s continued growth and excellence. For more information contact Friends Coordinator Gretchen Gfeller.
