Special Collections: Donation Form

To make a request for library staff to consider your donation, please fill out this form.

If we do not accept your donation, please do not take it personally! The Library has a limited amount of space to house collections in perpetuity. As a result, we are very selective about what we agree to accept for donations. If your donation is not added to our collection, we will do our best to help you identify another, more appropriate home for your materials.
