Membership

The mission of the NSLM is supported through our members who enjoy a rich program of benefits.

Through the support and dedication of our members, the NSLM provides the community with art exhibitions and educational programs, as well as fun special events celebrating the sporting life. Our membership levels offer diverse benefits to serve art, literature, and sport enthusiasts alike. As an NSLM member, you have free access to the Museum’s exhibits, as well as invitations to attend NSLM events: including exhibition openings and book signings, scholarly symposia, and hands-on workshops. Special tours with curatorial staff give members an inside look at the Library’s special collections and the loan exhibits in the Museum. Members are also given exclusive access to the Duplicate Book Sale, an annual NSLM tradition that makes rare sporting titles available for purchase.

Explore the many membership options at NSLM, and begin enjoying these exclusive benefits today. We look forward to seeing you at the National Sporting Library & Museum
