President's Circle

Membership

The President’s Circle recognizes individuals and couples who make significant investments ($1,250 or more each year) in promoting the public understanding of science, supporting resident fellowships, and preserving the Library’s vast collections.

President’s Circle members support the programs and activities that help the community to:

  • Distinguish science fact from science fiction.
  • Understand how science, engineering, and technology influence and impact daily life.
  • Connect with some of the greatest scientific minds, ranging from astronauts to Nobel Prize winners.
  • Meet our residential fellows, renowned scholars from around the world, and learn how they use the Library’s collections in their research.

President’s Circle membership offers three levels, each with corresponding benefits. Membership levels are based on the prior year’s cumulative giving. Benefits may change from year-to-year to ensure a variety of new and engaging experiences for members to enjoy. Current benefits for $3,000 and higher cumulative giving donors include the 2021 Learning Workshops.

Please note: Due to public health concerns related to COVID-19, programs will be offered on a virtual platform until further notice.
