Creative Gifts

Some of the special funds in place or proposed which welcome private support include:

  • Library Art Collection – An Art Acquisition Fund to allow the Library to purchase work for display in public areas.
  • Essential Literature Fund – This fund would be used to replace some of our most well-loved works of literature which have deteriorated through frequent use.
  • Making a Bequest – Bequests of all sizes play an important role in the growth and success of the Appalachian State University Library. If you have included Belk Library at Appalachian in your will, are considering doing so, or have any questions about planned gifts, please call our office. Your inquiry is confidential and places you under no obligation.
  • Gifts of Collections – Library collections grow in two ways: purchases and gifts. The University Library receives support from faculty, bibliophiles, collectors, and other benefactors who wish to donate their collections. Our special collections cover a fascinating array of subjects, such as classical and world music scores, richly illustrated children’s books, Appalachian regional history, stock car racing, and rare 14th century English volumes.

If you have an interest in donating your library or individual items to Appalachian State University, please contact us.
