Making a Donation

Book donations are always welcome to our library. This may be done either through a donation of books or money to buy books.

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.

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:

  • Library of Anderson College
  • Presented by ____________________
  • Date _______________

The handwritten dedication reads - Mrs. Maggie Parker, Mar. 9, 1914.

Keep in mind that Anderson College was founded in 1911.
