The Friends of Fondren Library, founded in 1950, is dedicated to stimulating growth in library resources and facilities for the 21st century. The Friends seek to heighten community and alumni interest in Fondren Library and to support academic programs at Rice University by funding library collections and facilities. The Flyleaf is a record of the activities of the Friends of the Fondren Library, and the generosity of the library’s supporters. The Flyleaf was published one to three times in each academic calendar year through 2011.
