Supporting the Library

Thank you for your interest in supporting the American University Library! Every academic program at the American University relies on the materials and services provided by the Library. Your contributions help us to maintain our collection of cutting-edge scholarly material. Please consider making a gift today.

Donation Policy

At present we are not accepting any donations of books or other materials for our general collection. If you are interested in making a donation to the AU Archives please send an email to to discuss.

For other materials, consider the local organizations linked on this page. There is also a Take-a-Book/Leave-a-Book shelf on the Lower Level of the library in the printing alcove. Additionally many communities in the District have a Little Free Library where individual books can be contributed.
