Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library organization at The College of Idaho's N. L. Terteling Library helps to enhance the development of the library's collection and services. Friends of the Library contributions have supported the addition to the library of books of every stripe, from history to graphic novels. The Friends of the Library gifts have provided our student library users with access to card and board games and adult coloring supplies for stress relief, as well as finals week study snacks and other events.


Members of the Friends of the Library have the following benefits:

  • Borrowing privileges at the N. L. Terteling Library

Membership Categories

Choose the membership category best suited to your needs:

  • New Individual Membership - $50
  • Returning Individual Membership - $30 annually
  • Couple (individual + significant other) - $75 annually

Under Internal Revenue Service guidelines the estimated value of the benefits received is not substantial;  therefore, the full amount of your membership is a deductible contribution.

Memorial contributions are a practical and gracious way to pay lasting tribute to a loved one. You may request that a book or books be added to the N. L. Terteling Library  in memory of a person you designate. Each book will bear a memorial bookplate inside its front cover.

Other gifts to the library are always welcome. However, we are only able to accept materials that  strengthen and augment our collection.

All gifts are tax deductible, though the library is prohibited by law from appraising donations or assigning monetary value to your gift.

If you are interested in making a gift to the library, please contact Christine Schutz by e-mail or telephone at 208-459-5524.
