Friends of the Library

Academy Fellows and Residents, artists, scholars and other readers in the Academy's Arthur & Janet C. Ross Library, as well as booklovers worldwide are cordially invited to join the Friends of the Library of the American Academy in Rome.

The Friends of the Library was founded 1961 by library readers so that they could help build the library's collections with their annual dues and special initiatives. For nearly half a century, the FOL has provided important financial support for acquisitions, and has helped to raise awareness of the library through regular programs presenting the work of its readers.
