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 review this website:

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