Making a Donation
Book donations are always welcome to our library. With a donation of $50, the library will purchase a book In Honor or In Memory of a student, alumni, friend, or loved one.
Gifts are acknowledged with a donor plaque placed in front of the book.
For more information about book donations in general, please visit our Book Donations page.
Donations from the Past
Friends of the Library have supported the university library from the beginning. Below are two gifts that have been in use for over 70 years.
Examples of Early Bookplates and Handwritten Dedications
During the first half of the century the library used a donation stamp and wrote in the details of the donation. The stamp you see below reads:

The handwritten dedication reads - Mrs. Maggie Parker, Mar. 9, 1914.
Keep in mind that Anderson College was founded in 1911.
