The Friends of Fondren Library (FoFL), founded in 1950, is dedicated to stimulating growth in library resources and facilities for the 21st century. Whether you're a Rice graduate, Rice faculty or staff member, community member or just a lover of knowledge, the Friends of Fondren Library needs your support as a member to enhance the Fondren Library’s collections and fulfill its ongoing need for resources and services.

I would like to support the Friends of Fondren Library

Due to COVID-19 campus protocols, the library building is open to Rice faculty, students and staff only. We are offering remote and virtual services for Friends members including books by mail and front-door book pickup. Electronic resources such as online journals and databases which must be accessed in the library building are not available at this time. Please email with any questions.
