Request books for your local school, library or non-profit!
The Library of Congress has available, for donation to eligible organizations and institutions, surplus books which are not needed for the Library's own uses. Eligible organizations, in Congressional District 8, must 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.
Books can be requested based on specific subject matters (art, sports, science, military, etc.), and eligible organizations can request books by contacting our office. Below, you will find a form detailing the information that is needed to facilitate a donation from the Library. If you have any questions, please contact our District office at (623) 776-7911.
