Honor With Books

Participating in the Honor With Books program is a way for you to help build the White Library collection while celebrating a life event or honoring the memory of a loved one. For as little as $50 you can honor the person of your choice with a bookplate in one of our books. Names of the honoree and donor will appear, along with a message of your choice, inside the book’s front cover and in the computer display of the White Library’s online catalog. You can request a notification of the gift to be sent to the honoree (or the honoree’s family).

Contact the White Library at whitelibrary@arbor.edu to learn more about how to participate in the Honor With Books program.

Donate Your Books to the White Library

The Spring Arbor University White Library welcomes the donation of gift books to our collection. We are interested mostly in academic titles that are scholarly, current, or rare items in good physical condition. Once donated, gift books become the property of the White Library. Donated books will be evaluated by our librarians using the same criteria as materials which are purchased.

The University Library does not appraise gifts. This policy is endorsed by the American Library Association. The IRS requires an independent appraisal if a donor plans to claim a charitable deduction above a certain value. Upon request, the White Library will provide the donor with information on the number of books donated, not a specific list of titles.

If you have questions about donating books to the library, or would like to arrange to drop-off gift books, please email whitelibrary@arbor.edu or 517 750 6435.

Shop Through the White Library's Amazon Storefront

Prices are the same for you and the library receives a small percentage of the purchase price. If you are going to buy from Amazon.com anyway, why not shop through our storefront to benefit the library.
