Book Donations to the CSULA Library

Book Donations Needed
for the
University Library
Do you have a campus office full to overflowing with books that you no longer use? Are your professional journals taking up valuable space in your garage? Does your personal collection of books and magazines need weeding? The Friends of the Library suggest that you donate these materials to the CSULA Library--help the Library by helping yourself.


The Library will carefully screen all donations for addition to the Library's collection. Even when the Library already owns the item donated, there can be a need for a second copy or replacement of a worn copy. Materials not retained for the collection will be sold at the Library's book sale, the proceeds of which will be used to purchase needed materials.


Books can be dropped off at the Library's Circulation Desk. With advance notice, the Library can also arrange to make a pick-up from campus offices. To make arrangements or for information on how to deliver larger gifts from off campus, please contact Sandy Kwong in Library Technical Services at x3-3981.


Book donations to the Library will be acknowledged with a letter of thanks and a description of the donation. The Library is not permitted to offer an evaluation of the gift for income tax purposes. However, the donor may estimate the fair market value of the gift for his or her tax return. Keep a record of your gift and contact your tax consultant for further information.
