Libraries Get Cash

A quartet of wealthy alumni just donated $2.5 million to the Penn State University Libraries. This gift set a new donation record and will support the Pattee Library’s new Knowledge Commons.

A major upcoming renovation, the Knowledge Commons will act as an information technology center within the library. Jeanette and John R. McWhirter and Ann and Peter G. Tombros are the generous donors behind these funds. Read the Penn State Live article for the details regarding their fascinating (and financially rewarding) career trajectories.

In addition to the joint gift of $2.5 million, the Tombros couple has offered $1.4 million to improve the University Libraries’ collections of Classics and Greek Literature.

This fortunate turn of events is excellent news for our libraries. May the manifestations of these gifts expand our knowledge as university students.
