The Pride Library relies exclusively on donations to build its collections. Since opening its doors in 1997, our collection has grown from a mere 100 volumes to over 10,000. Each successive year brings more donations than the last. Donations come from across Canada and around the world. The information that follows tells you what you can donate, and how to donate. Also, refer to our Collection Policy for detailed information on what we collect.

    Donating Books

    Books can be dropped off during library hours. All donors are encouraged to sign the books they donate, although this is optional. If you have one or more boxes to carry to the library, please contact Professor Miller to arrange for parking on campus next to the library.

    Donating Other Materials

    Journals, photographs, slides, videos, documents, clippings, posters, and other relevant materials are welcome.
