Donation of Books and Other Materials
The Library welcomes inquiries about donations of library materials but cannot accept everything. Prospective donors should NOT send the item(s), but instead, send gift offers identifying the item(s) to be donated. Prospective donors of books published in the United States should be aware that the Library acquires many U.S. titles through copyright deposit.
