  • The King's library does not accept textbooks, abridgements, anthologies, readers, or other items that do not have lasting academic value. 
  • All materials must be published within the last five years.  

Please note the following:  

  • The King's library reserves the right to refuse any donation. 
  • The King's library reserves the right to throw away donated materials that do not meet collection needs and policy guidelines.
