As an alumnus who has benefited from an MTSU education, you can now help to strengthen the educational opportunity for a current student. Through the University's Student Book Honor program, alumni, family, and friends can highlight individual achievement for a current student while, at the same time, enhancing library resources for all students. Book honor awards go directly toward purchasing books for the Library. The name of the donor and the honoree will be placed on a placard within the purchased book(s). For more information see the Student Book Honor page.
For information on other ways you can support library resources for student excellence, see the Walker Library Support page or call the library at (615) 898-2772.
