Gift Sets Program

library-of-america-logoLibrary of America offers a special discount to encourage individuals to donate volumes to institutions in their communities, such as a child’s school, an alma mater, or a public library.

A gift of Library of America volumes is 100% tax-deductible and can be made in honor of a friend or family member. This is a wonderful way to recognize an enthusiastic reader or regular patron of a particular library.

Past recipients of gift sets have included public and private schools, colleges, universities, public libraries, prisons, the American Library in Paris, the American Academy in Rome, the Roosevelt Institute in Hyde Park, New York, the Clemente Course in the Humanities at Bard College, and Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, among many others.

Volumes given through the Gift Sets Program are discounted to $25 each—30 percent off LOA’s already-discounted retail price—and shipping is free. You may create a Gift Set of any size, from a few volumes to the complete Library of America Series. A handsome bookplate acknowledging your gift will be placed in the front of each volume given.

If you are interested in donating a set of Library of America volumes, please contact Caroline Horn, Director of Institutional Advancement, at or 212-308-3360.
