The Lauinger Family Library Endowment Fund was established in 1996 by Philip C. Lauinger Jr. C'58, Frank T. Lauinger C'62, Anthony J. Lauinger C'67, Mary Lauinger Melvin, and Frances Lauinger Biolchini. The purpose of the fund is to foster Catholic values through the acquisition of current and retrospective books, journals, periodicals, audio-visuals, computer archives, and other library materials supportive of the teachings of Magisterium on the issues of abortion, contraception, infanticide, homosexuality, assisted suicide, euthanasia, reproductive technologies, and other similar issues related to marriage, family, human sexuality, human life, and bioethics.
