Materials Donations

The library often receives gifts of materials. These items are accepted as an unrestricted gift and as such may not necessarily be made part of the library’s permanent collections. Donors are recognized by a gift plate in the volume and in the online catalog record for materials that are retained.

Donations and gifts can be sent to or dropped off at the library’s AskUs Desk. We ask that donors fill out a brief form so gifts may be acknowledged. In accordance with IRS rules the Library, as an interested party, is not allowed to appraise donations, per IRS regulations. If you are interested in an appraisal for journal issues or volumes, you will find that Absolute Backorder Service, Inc. is an excellent company to work with; our primary contact is Sandy Belskis, General Manager.
