Friends of The Library


Friends of the Library or commonly abbreviated as FLY was built by the Universitas Multimedia Nusantara Library in 2011. FLY was developed to establish synergies between UMN students, staff, and lecturers, form a community that plays a role in strengthening the position and role of libraries inside and outside UMN, and conducts various activities such as seminars, book reviews, workshops and exhibitions to promote the library.  

FLY started when several students did some projects with the library. As time goes by, FLY grows and develops into a community and a forum for library activities. FLY volunteered to help developing libraries. This activity is often referred to as social works. This social works program often helps to run contrivances in the library service division and collection development division.

Since its establishment in 2011, FLY has undergone numerous leadership changes. The first time it was founded, FLY was led by Christian Orvin, the then-Computer Systems year of 2012 student.
