Friends of the CSUN Library - How to Donate Books

Thank you for thinking of the Friends of the Library to donate your books. While the Library is accepting donated books for the Friends of the Library book cart, and while in some cases the Library will accept the donation of rare books for Special Collections & Archives, the Library is no longer accepting donated books for the Main Book Collection.

We appreciate your support of the University Library in other ways. We are accepting donations to support our various collections and programs as we encourage our students and further the mission of California State University, Northridge.
