Do You Know about the Book Donation Program of the Library of Congress?

The Library of Congress has surplus books available that are not needed for the Library’s own uses. Organizations and institutions, that are eligible for donation must be located in the United States and fall into one of the following categories:

  • Full-time, tax-supported or nonprofit educational institution: school, school system, college, university, museum, or public library.
  • Agency of local, state, or federal government.
  • Nonprofit institution or organization that has tax-exempt status under the provisions of section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (see 41 CFR 101-44.207 (a)(17)) and that operates a library and/or research center open to the public.
