The Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection is a “by fans for fans” organization that came together ten years ago, when we recognized that much of the written history of Bruce and his bands was in danger of being lost. From the original donations of 850 publications in 2001 we’ve created a world-class repository of books, magazines, tour books, song books, fanzines and other documents covering the entire history of Bruce Springsteen and his bands.

Thanks to our current Friends membership, the Collection has grown to over 20,000 items.  New and continued support helps us increase the quality of the Collection, its visibility, and its stature. New members will help ensure the permanent preservation of Bruce books, magazines and other printed works through state-of-the-art archival techniques. And you will enable us to start thinking ahead to the day when we can continue expanding the Collection into new and as yet untapped areas.

A Friends membership lasts for three years.  During that time, we keep you updated on the band and provide you with advance notice for any and all special events as well as a membership card.  The $50.00 cost of membership really helps us to meet our goals as stated above. One hundred percent of your membership dues are used toward purchasing new items for the Collection or archival materials and supplies.
