Support Cowles Library

Cowles is the largest private academic library in Iowa, with a mission to support the educational goals of Drake by providing services, collections, technology, and learning opportunities that make it possible for faculty, students, and the community to successfully access and use information.

This is an exciting time for Cowles Library! We continue to grow our online presence with resources and digital collections. We are working hard to develop a virtual presence that enhances student engagement and reflects the prevailing aspects of the virtual world – self-paced, independent, and social. At the same time, the library facility continues to serve as a center for study and community with special events and programming, as well as home to the University Archives & Special Collections.

We invite you to express your love of books, your support for the mission of Cowles library, or your appreciation for what the library means or meant to you as a student, researcher, or community member by making a gift. Your contribution in any amount will help the library continue to provide excellent services, programming, and a state-of-the-art facility.

Please consider making a contribution to Drake University’s Cowles Library.
