Thank you for your interest in donating to Western Libraries! Unfortunately, at this time we are generally not accepting donations unless they are for rare or unique items.  Processing donated materials for public use has costs that we are trying to avoid, especially since most donated books are older and do not get checked out.

If you have items that you think might still be of use to Western Libraries, please contact Acquisitions/Serials Manager Julie Fitzgerald, phone 360-650-3038, e-mail

More information about rare and archival collections at Western is available through Western Libraries' Heritage Resources webpage. This page provides links to useful information and contact details for the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies, Western Libraries Special Collections and the WWU Archives and Records Center. 

If you are interested in making a financial donation in support of the Libraries commitment to serving the information needs of the Western community please visit our Giving Page.
