Adopt a Book
Decades of wear and tear leave their mark on the historic volumes of the MSU Libraries. You can help preserve our valuable collections by making a gift to support the conservation treatment of a rare book, map or manuscript.
The MSU Libraries’ expert conservation staff, with the resources of the Florence G. Wallace Conservation Laboratory, ensure that our print collections remain available for use by current and future generations of students, faculty and researchers.
A bookplate will be placed in the volume your gift helps preserve, and you (or anyone you designate) will receive a note of appreciation with information about the item chosen and the treatment it was given.
To Adopt a Book, review the following list, note your selection on our form (pdf) and send it to the Development Office.
