Generosity is giving more than you can.

On behalf of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, we would like to convey our gratitude and appreciation to the thousands of donors who have taken the time and effort to help our collection grow. Besides the physical growth of the library, our unique donors also assist in adding to the variety of our collection, by expressing their individual tastes and interests, and sharing them with the nearly one million patrons we receive each year.

The opportunity to link one's name with an institution that is doing so much for so many is a compelling motivation to support the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The gifts provide an ideal time to permanently bond a donor's name, or a name honored by the donor, with the traditions and future of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
