Donations and Gifts


The Library accepts donations selectively, considering research value, space available, and condition of the material outlined in collection policies.

With the  donor form, the library returns a letter indicating the numbers of hardcover, paperback, and media items donated. All gifts are reviewed by librarians who determine what is added, sold, and discarded.

To Donate

  • List materials for title review if the donation is large
  • Contact the appropriate subject librarian
  • Deliver to the Library by mail or during regular business hours
  • Print, fill, sign, and include a Library Donor Form
