Friends of the Owen D. Young and Launders Libraries (FODYLL)


Founded in 1970, the Friends of the Owen D. Young and Launders Libraries (FODYLL) dedicate themselves both to deepening and broadening the understanding of the critical role of the libraries in the mission of St. Lawrence University and to promoting awareness of the substantial and varied collections and resources these libraries make available to our community.

FODYLL helps fund important acquisitions for Special Collections, to nurture the growth of digital collections, to foster and reward student excellence in research and writing, to provide database access to alumnae and Friends, and to serve the community of readers by hosting occasional lectures.
