Donate Materials to Albert S. Cook Library

Donate New Materials Through Our Amazon Wish List

The items on Cook Library's Amazon Wish List represent titles that the Library is interested in obtaining but does not have the financial resources to purchase. The items have been carefully selected by the librarians who serve as liaisons to Towson's academic departments and these librarians, along with the Library's technical services staff, keep the list as up-to-date as possible.

Donate Your Own Materials

A gift of books or other materials suitable for Cook Library is another way to enhance the library's collection. Thoughtfully selected materials that are in good condition and that support the curriculum at Towson University can strengthen the collection. Gift bookplates may be placed in donated volumes at the request of the donor.

All gifts of library materials become property of the library. The library staff will determine whether the gift will be retained, where it will be shelved or located, and how it will be cataloged or circulated. Materials not added to the collection may be sold.


The library will send you an acknowledgment letter and you will receive a "thank you" from the Towson University Foundation. The library is unable to provide donors of library materials with a list of titles donated. If you need such a list, please make it before you bring your gift to the library.


Federal laws do not permit the library to make appraisals. If you need a value placed on your gift, please have the appraisal done prior to making the donation.
