Giving to the Library
Thank you for considering a gift to Odum Library. Donations help us maintain and enrich the quality of Library collections, services, and programs. No matter the amount, the Library welcomes your gift. Because Valdosta State University is a nonprofit organization, most gifts qualify for the charitable gift income tax deduction.
Odum Library welcomes gifts that support the instructional and research programs of the University. The Library reserves the right to make a final decision whether to add a donated item or not. Please see our Gifts page for brief guidance on excluded items, and links to additional resources. The Library does not conduct appraisals.
