Access to the College Green area of campus will be restricted until further notice. PennCard holders and some Penn affiliates may enter and exit Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center through the Rosengarten Undergraduate Study Center on the ground floor, and may enter and exit the Fisher Fine Arts Library through the 34th Street entrance to Meyerson Hall. See our Service Alerts for details.

The Orrery Society recognizes donors who support information resources at a leadership giving level. Orrery Society members serve as the Penn Libraries’ ambassadors for acquisitions and collection development, digitization, conservation, and librarian travel.

The Orrery Society has two major objectives:

  1. To expand access to scholarly information through term and endowed support for acquisitions, digitization, and conservation, annual gifts in support of collections, and gifts of in-kind collections;
  2. To expand University and alumni awareness of the importance information plays in helping the University achieve its scholarly mission. 

The Orrery Society's volunteer leadership helps advance these objectives.


If you are interested in joining the Orrery Society, please contact Charlie Grafman, Associate Director of Development.
