Donate your books to the White Library

The Spring Arbor University White Library welcomes the donation of gift books to our collection only if the donation is in support of the teaching and research needs of the university.  We are interested mostly in academic titles that are scholarly, current, or rare items in good physical condition.

Donated books become the property of the White Library.  The White Library retains the right to dispose of or retain any gift books in the manner deemed necessary and in the best interests of the institution.

In accordance with Federal Law, the White Library cannot appraise gifts because it is an interested recipient.   The IRS requires an independent appraisal if a donor plans to claim a charitable deduction. Upon request, the library will provide the donor with the number of books donated, not a specific list of titles.  It is the responsibility of the donor to keep a record of donated titles.

If you believe your books will be a unique addition to the University Library, please contact Robbie Bolton to arrange for the donation of your materials.  Email:  Phone: 517-750-6444
