Ringling College Library Association
The Ringling College Library Association (RCLA) was born from a small support group in 1975. A pioneering handful of community leaders started by donating $500 to help a struggling art school build its library. As Ringling College grew, so did our non-profit organization. It’s now expanded to nearly 2,000 members, and enjoyed many successes along the way. 2017 marked our greatest success story when the Alfred R. Goldstein Library opened its doors. It was a vision fulfilled. And the result of a long and loving campaign fueled by our members and TOWN HALL Lecture Series loyal patrons. As an organization we operate with an annual overhead of just 10 percent and have made gifts and commitments to the college in excess of $11 million dollars.
