The library is a central part of the American University experience, as well as the Washington, DC community. The library supports all the colleges and schools within AU and is part of a consortium of libraries that supports nine DC-area universities., It has a vast array of specialized research librarians that do everything from helping first year students with literature reviews to tracking down texts for senior research professors. The library also hosts several different resources including large poster printers, 3-D printers, and even has hand tools for students to check out.
Recently, Adam Tager, Worshipful Master of The Eagle Lodge, Perry Blatstein, Past Master and Secretary, and Peter W. Brusoe, Senior Warden, presented the Lodge’s 2018 donation to University Librarian Nancy Davenport . A significant matching contribution was also provided by the Masonic & Eastern Star Home Charities (MESH) of the District of Columbia.
After the check presentation, the Lodge members were given a private tour of the ongoing library renovations and the new collaboration spaces being constructed to further student research and engagement.
