Crazy Smart / Stadium of the MindA great library is like a stadium of the mind.

It’s where the game of knowledge is played, problems are tackled, and the best mental moves go down in the books.

The next time you attend a Duke sporting event, check the back of your ticket. For every ticket sold to regular season home games, Duke Athletics will donate $1 to Duke University Libraries.

That includes baseball and football games, as well as men’s and women’s basketball, lacrosse and soccer matches.

When you show your support for the Blue Devils, you’re not just rooting for these guys. You’re helping us make big plays for the entire Duke community, like the upcoming renovation of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

Here at the Libraries, we are proud of the accomplishments of Duke athletes on the field and in the classroom. And we believe that a strong library system greatly enhances every student’s ability to excel academically.

Go for the big play. Support Duke University Libraries. Make your gift today.
