  • Commemorate the Gala Legacy with your sponsorship!

    Sponsorship Request

    5th Annual Evening at the Brooks: Gala and Silent Auction

    Saturday, April 14, 2018 7-10:30 p.m.

     

    Transforming the Library:

    In this milestone year of our annual library fundraiser, we take this opportunity to honor the legacies of our beloved namesake, Dr. James E. Brooks, and Emeritus Professor Patricia J. Cutright, who served as Dean of CWU Libraries from 2010-2017. Jim and Patricia shared a goal of moving the Brooks Library into the 21st Century, transforming it from a traditional brick and mortar repository for books, to a vibrant hub of academic discourse, both physical and virtual, to serve the campus, the community, and the Central Washington region.

     

    Your sponsorship would make it possible to continue this journey beginning with plans for creating a Learning Commons on the second floor of the library. This space will serve as a 200-seat flexible study, instructional, and programming space that encourages collaboration and diverse programming. This renovation also accommodates projected enrollment increases, and will incorporate media technology to support academic creative expression.

     

    Your sponsorship will help us realize this continuation of the Brooks/Cutright legacy.
