Libraries Launch Fundraising Campaign to Support Renovations at W. W. Hagerty Library

Empty seats are hard to come at W. W. Hagerty Library as the Libraries at Drexel are used more than ever, not only for serious study, but for learners to build the skills necessary to utilize information effectively.

Drexel recently has recently acknowledged a need to provide additional alternative group study environments, creating the Library Learning Terrace and now, after nearly 30 years of heavy use, W. W. Hagerty Library is ready for a renovation.

This main library was named after Drexel University’s eighth president, William Walsh Hagerty. For decades, President Hagerty’s family has generously supported the Libraries and continues to do so by matching all donations designated for the renovation project between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013 – up to $25,000.

More than 20 rooms at the library are being equipped with state of the art technology and furniture for collaborative learning. These inspiring environments should be very popular with Drexel’s motivated students, and rooms are currently available to be named in honor of a loved one of your choice*.

Make a contribution toward our renovations today through a secure online donation. For more information, contact Kerry DiBlasio at 215-571-3803 or

* For a total commitment of $10,000, payable over 5 years, we would be happy to name one of these rooms for you or a beloved professor or loved one of your choice. Contact Kerry DiBlasio at 215-571-3803 or for more information.
