The Library welcomes gifts and encourages donations. Due to the high cost of processing and storing materials, the Library reserves the right to refuse the gift of any materials that the librarians consider unsuitable as an addition to the collection.
Due to a large backlog, and limited space and staffing, the Library does not accept unsolicited donations. Please do not bring materials to the Library without first discussing your donation with a librarian.
The Library accepts relevant books, scores, recordings, moving images, and potentially other material based on the following criteria:
Relevancy to collection (publication date, subject area)
Condition of materials
Current collection needs
Examples of materials that are not generally accepted for donation include the following:
popular trade paperbacks
magazines or periodicals
popular sheet music
materials in poor condition (i.e. writing on pages; musty smell; yellowed, brittle or torn pages)
