Library Endowment Fund

The Library Endowment fund supports the library’s mission to provide focused collections of scholarly books and materials to support the curriculum at WSU. Donating to the Library Endowment Fund allows the library to focus on developing specific subject areas of our collection.

Gifts of Books, Periodicals, Papers and Other Documents

The main library collection contains scholarly books and materials to support the curriculum at WSU. We accept gift books which support WSU academic subject areas.

The library retains the right to accept items and deaccession items.

There are common items the library does not usually accept such as:

  • Items already owned by the Krueger Library
  • Outdated textbooks
  • Copies of publications
  • Damaged materials or materials in poor condition
  • Items which do not support the WSU curriculum or mission of the library

Gift-in-Kind Acknowledgements

The library appreciates donations of all types. As a donor you may request an acknowledgement for a gift-in-kind for tax purposes. Many gifts-in-kind are tax deductible. We do not provide appraisals for donations, however we will list the number and types of items donated so that you may document your donation. You may also contact the WSU University Advancement office to request additional documentation for monetary donations.
