Albert S. Cook Library

Whether it's a paper, a project or a personal need, Towson University students have to hit the books, meet with groups and gather research. The Albert S. Cook Library is the lifeblood of that work. Opened in 1969, the library is home to more than 700,000 volumes and nearly 50,000 accessible journals. It provides online access to electronic databases for even more works – more than 285,000 e-books and 200 databases in all.

Cook Library also serves as a home for the university's history, housing Towson's Special Collections and Archives – thousands of publications and photos that help tell the story of Towson's nearly 150 years.

You can make a gift to a specific project in the library, or to the library as a whole. In both cases, your generosity helps challenge, inform and inspire Towson students and faculty while preserving a rich and layered university history.

    The library has tons of leather bound books, and if you think about it really hard, smells of rich mahogany.
