#MoveInMiami - Help students succeed by supporting the Library

#MoveInMiami -- a one-day fundraiser for Miami University -- is today, Thursday, August 25! It supports activities throughout the University, and the library has been added to the list of possible funds to receive donations. 

As an added bonus to regional campus donors and friends, our retired Regional Dean Mike Pratt and his wife Patty will personally contribute $10 to the fund of your choice for each new gift raised on 8/25 (a gift must be $5 or more and must be given to a regional campus fund).  And if this day of giving reaches our 400 donor goal, our interim Regional Dean Cathy Bishop-Clark and her husband Greg will give $1,000 to the regional campus fund that has the most donors.

This is an exciting opportunity for the library to raise gift funds to support our programming, add new books and technology, and provide services to students, faculty and staff members, and members of the Middletown community.  We hope to increase the number of textbooks we let students borrow and the number of laptops and iPads we are able to check out to students.  Another big push for us this year is buying supplies for 3D printing and other creative activities as we teach students to innovate in our TEC Lab makerspace.

If you are interested in making even a small gift to the Gardner-Harvey Library (or our sister library in Hamilton), please use the form at All gifts are tax deductible, and you will be emailed a receipt upon making a gift online. Gifts must be made on August 25 to qualify for this initiative.

Thank you very much for your time!
