Friends of the Library is a special patron group formed to promote and support the activity of the Menil Collection Library. In becoming a member of the Friends of the Library, you will enter a distinguished affinity group that values and promotes exceptional literature, directly supporting the museum’s scholarly efforts and broadening the library’s holdings.
