The mission of the Rodney A. Briggs Library Associates (BLA) is threefold: 1) recognize the role that Briggs Library plays in the success of the University of Minnesota Morris and the life of West Central Minnesota; 2) Provide Programming and exhibits to enrich the cultural, intellectual and artistic life of these communities; and 3) raise funds for projects, furnishings and material not possible with existing library budget.

To further this mission, we will consider, on a rolling basis, proposals from members of the Morris and West Central Minnesota community for funding of specific activities, exhibits, and programs. Proposals will be reviewed on a monthly basis at the BLA board meeting. To apply for funding, please complete this online form. For questions, contact
