Surplus Books Program
I am excited to work with the Library of Congress to provide surplus book donations to organizations in CA-39.
Eligible organizations and institutions must be located in CA-39 and fall into one of the following categories:
- Full-time, tax-supported or nonprofit educational institution: school, school system, college, university, museum, or public library.
- Agency of local, state, or federal government.
- Nonprofit institution or organization that has tax-exempt status under the provisions of section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (see 41 CFR 101-44.207 (a)(17)) and that operates a library and/or research center open to the public.
Books can be requested based on specific subject matters (history, art, sports, science, cooking, military, etc.), and eligible organizations can request books by contacting our office. Below, you will find a form detailing the information that is needed to facilitate a donation from the Library of Congress. If you have any questions, please contact our DC office at (202) 225-4111
