Textbook Donation Program

Accepting gently used books to help students in need. 

Time to clear out your bookshelves & cabinets! Donate your unwanted books to the future student basic needs center’s library (Fall 2024). We prefer gently used, undamaged books that are not dirty or moldy. Books will be used to assist Rutgers students in need and unable to afford textbooks. 

Drop off locations are at the information desks of the following locations:

  • College Ave Student Center 
  • Livingston Student Center 
  • Douglass Student Center 
  • Cook Student Center 
  • Busch Student Center 

Donations we accept:

  • New or used textbooks
  • Scientific or graphing calculators
  • Clickers or other course technologies 
  • Other course supplies or materials, in good shape

If you have highlighted in your book or written on worksheet pages, we'll still accept them.
