Mortvedt Library Gift Policy

The library at Pacific Lutheran University welcomes gifts of funds or materials. Gifts of funds are always appreciated and will be acknowledged. Due to limited space and the significant staff time and resources involved in evaluating and processing material donations, the following guidelines have been established:

  • All gifts become the property of Mortvedt Library and may be sold, added to the collection, or donated elsewhere.
  • To be accepted, donated materials should be clean and in good condition.
  • Gifts with conditions or restrictions are generally not accepted.
  • Gifts are acknowledged, but the library cannot perform appraisals of donated items for purposes of tax deductions.
