Information for people who are interested in giving to the Everett Library

Dedicate a Book

Dedicate a Book

Everett Library welcomes book dedications to honor family members, friends and acquaintances. Memorial book donations are excellent ways to remember those who loved books and loved to read.

A gift of $25 or $50 will allow us to purchase a book and provide a bookplate in honor of the person(s) to whom the book is dedicated. We will select a book that supports one of the literature collections of Everett or a book from a field or interest area that you wish us to explore.

If you wish to be contacted regarding a book dedication, please contact us: everett@queens.edu or 704-337-2401.

Give to the Library

Everett Library accepts a limited number of gifts to its collection of books and videos. Gifts must be unconditional and must be made with the understanding that the library will sell or discard unwanted gift items at its own discretion.

Gift books are reviewed for inclusion in the collection by librarians in cooperation with faculty. Only those items that directly support the university's curriculum and that conform to the library's collection development policy will be added. In general, the library will not add a duplicate copy of items already in the collection. 

Gift materials that cannot be donated or sold will be discarded. These materials will not be returned to the original donor. Donations will be acknowledged in writing, but the library will not appraise any gift materials for the donor.

Questions about gift materials should be directed to everett@queens.edu or 704-337-2401.
