Benefits & Levels
The Ringling College Library Association evolved from the original 214-member Friends of the Ringling Art Library in 1975 to the over 1,800-member organization it is today. The Association is able to successfully support the growing collections at the Alfred R. Goldstein Library through the commitment of our community members who are dedicated to seeing that one of the country’s most remarkable art libraries will continue telling its story for years to come.
All Members receive the following benefits:
Alfred R. Goldstein Library Privileges
RCLA Members have check-out privileges from the research collection. Additionally, members have access to electronic subscription resources for research and the opportunity to view rare books and works from the Library’s Artists’ Book collection. Please note: due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Ringling College is not accepting outside guests to visit the Goldstein Library. Only faculty, students, and staff are allowed on school grounds.

RCLA Membership Levels
The last day to become a new member or renew your existing membership is April 30, 2022. Attendees hoping to order TOWN HALL must wait for the public sale in June 2022.
Note: Members do not automatically qualify for TOWN HALL tickets. Members must submit a separate order for tickets to attend the lecture series. Memberships do not include TOWN HALL. Being a member grants you access to tickets early during the pre-sale, thus giving our members priority seating to the series, and avoid the risk of a sell-out. When/if single tickets become available, members will again have first access to purchase individual event tickets.
