The College of Western Idaho Library appreciates donations of materials that support teaching and learning at CWI. The Library makes purchases and adds donated materials to its collection based on its Collection Development Policy. Donations may be dropped off at any time with the understanding that the Library does not guarantee that donated items will be added to the collection. Individuals donating large amounts of material are requested to make arrangements in advance by contacting the Library.

Donated books and other materials that fit collection development criteria are integrated into the general collection. Gifts that do not meet collection development criteria may, at the discretion of the Library, be offered to other libraries, agencies, CWI students, faculty and staff; or discarded.

We will, upon request, provide an official acknowledgement of the gift stating the quantity of items received. The Library regrets that we are not able to provide an official evaluation of gifts; this is the responsibility of the donor in consultation with a tax adviser.
