Main Policy Content
The Penn State University Libraries generally do not accept book donations and unsolicited gifts due to several factors, including cost of assessment and processing, storage space, and high likelihood of duplication within the existing collections.
Here are some other resources for book donations:
- AAUW of State College Branch
- Better World Books
- American Library Association (ALA) Book Donation Resource Website
Please reach out to our Libraries’ subject experts if you have any questions. There are many Ways to Give to the University Libraries. Thank you for your support.
