Endow a Library Chair


No matter how well made they are, library chairs don't last forever. With over 500 reading chairs throughout the Rush Rhees Library, funding for our chairs is an ever-present need.

Through the Libraries seating endowment, your gift of $750 will ensure that there are funds to repair, reupholster, and, when the time comes, replace a chair so your gift will remain a permanent part of the Rush Rhees library. 

To identify your chair, a plaque will be inscribed with your name or that of someone you wish to honor or memorialize and affixed to your chair.

This is a wonderful way to make a lasting contribution to the Library and, simultaneously, to recognize an individual, event or activity that has been meaningful to you.
