The Mulva Library is the hub of student academic life on campus. Home to more than 247,000 volumes, including books, journals and other serials, microforms, maps and charts, it also offers amazing places to study.

Support the Intellectual Heart of Campus

There’s something very special happening every day in the Mulva Library as we partner with students, faculty, staff and the broader community to engage intellectual curiosities.

And the donor support we receive makes all the difference.

Bookplate ExampleBookplate Donations
Honoring students, faculty, staff, graduates and friends of the college through monetary donations to the Mulva Library is a meaningful way to remember and mark their accomplishments in your life. 

Digital bookplates offer an enduring expression of the significant ways individuals contribute to our lives. Birthdays, births, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, new jobs and promotions, personal accomplishments, religious celebrations, retirements and deaths are all milestones worthy of consideration. 

Using a digital bookplate to thank parents, grandparents, graduates, professors, mentors, advisors, friends and colleagues all create a lasting tie which ripples throughout the St. Norbert College community.

If you’re interested in making a bookplate donation, please use our donation form. If you have questions please contact Bob Rickards at 920-403-3027 or

In-Kind Donations
Your gift of books, manuscripts and collections built over the years might just be the missing puzzle piece to an area we’ve been developing for years. We welcome your donations and want you to consider us as a new home for these materials.
