    Do you still accept book donations? We have donated books in past years.

    Now we have dozens of like new recently published quality paperbacks purchased from Barnes & Noble or If you can accept them, we can drop them off.

    • Yes! Book donations are being accepted for the 2019 Friends of the LSU Libraries Book Bazaar, and books can be dropped off at any local Kean’s Cleaners or at the Book Barn at 3555 River Road. Thank you for thinking of the Friends!
