The LSU Library is more than 50 years old and is in dire need of a makeover. Some Alumni of the Baton Rouge University have stepped up to try to raise the funds.

Ginger Gibson Burk set up the Go Fund Me page and says it's time for alumni of Louisiana State University to get involved. She says

For far too long, one of the schools most important assets - the library has been neglected. The building is crumbling before our eyes. It doesn't just house books and microfilm and computers, it is the center of our quad and the center of our education. It is the place we studied, met friends, worked on group projects, crammed for finals and took refuge on those hot days when we just needed a break.

We all love our football team. We are proud of the work they do every day to represent our school. We are happy that donors stepped forward to provide them world-class facilities.

Now its time the rest of us step forward to provide  a world-class facility for the entire student body.

All donations will go to the LSU Foundation - which is dedicated to advancing the University's academic priorities. And that means the donation is tax deductible. The goal is to bring in $20 million. So far, only about $5,000 has been raised.
