BOOK DONATION PROGRAM SUSPENDED
Effective March 1, 2013, the Hekman Library will cease sending an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes for donated books and other items. If you believe your books represent a unique contribution to the Hekman Library collection, contact Glenn Remelts, library director, at email@example.com describing the nature of the books.
