Book Donations

Thank you for thinking of us!

We are only able to accept unrestricted gifts and donations if we have a gap and the materials meet the selection criteria outlined in the collection development policy. We maintain a wish list of items we are looking to add to our collection which can be viewed below.

  • Provincial, Federal, and British Legislation in good condition
  • annotated Acts from within the last 3 - 5 years
  • loose-leaf titles that have been updated within the last 5 - 10 years
  • Journals
  • Case law report series
  • American legislation and case law series
  • material not in the official Canadian languages

Things to keep in mind when you donate:

  • we reserve the right to discard donated items at any point
  • if we are unable to inspect the material prior to donation, we would like photographs
  • we do not provide tax receipts for donated items
  • ideally, accepted donations would be delivered to a CLBC branch
  • we can not accept mouldy or damaged materials
