BOOK DONATION POLICY
We understand you have books by or about women you could give us. However, we are overloaded with cartons in storage and we are very clear about what books we need for the library. Our main purpose is to provide a resource and reference archive that does not duplicate what is readily available elsewhere.
Before you donate, check on Sappho to see whether we already have the book.
So do donate those latest novels to your local library sale, or sell them and donate the money to the Sitting Room.
From time to time we will seek particular types of books to fill a gap. Currently we are seeking books in the following categories.
Graphic novels by women, for a new collection
Women artists, including photographers, architects, dancers, choreographers, musicians, and anyone else you would put in the artist category
International fiction and poetry in translation
Biography of women writers, by the most recent or expert on the subject
Local writers, of all genders
Plays by women, so we can read them aloud
