Thomas G. Carpenter Library
1 UNF Drive
Jacksonville, FL 32224
Furniture replacement and repair is essential and every student should have a “seat” to fit their particular learning style and facilitate success.
With the Library Commons renovation in 2015, exciting new spaces for collaborative and individual work areas were delivered to improve the Library and benefit UNF students, faculty, and community members.
However, the Library still has a 200 seat deficit. This becomes very clear during exam weeks when our dedicated students are seated along the floors throughout the building. The Library serves over 800,000 students, faculty, and community members per year and it is critical to add seating to accommodate their needs.
The “Seat-a-Student” program will ensure Library furniture keeps pace with changes in education, research, and need, and that each space is suitably furnished for group-work areas, presentation-practice rooms, or individual study carrels. The Seat-a-Student program will guarantee that no UNF student in 2050 will encounter the same furniture installed today.
Consider supporting Seat-a-Student at one of the following levels:
White Library Osprey: $500
Blue Library Osprey: $1,000
Silver Library Osprey: $2,500
Gold Library Osprey: $5,000 +
Some gifts above may be pledged over a five year period.
