Uni Books is an effort to build an outstanding, engaging, and versatile collection of browseable books for public space. We’re interested in the following broad categories:
- Children’s picture books
- Poetry, short stories, essays
- Art and photography
Based on our experience developing a similar collection for the Storefront Library, we think these type of books make a good foundation for a browsable collection, especially when the books are high-quality and the titles eclectic.
Contact Leslie Davol at anytime with questions about your contribution to the Uni.
Uni Book Donation Policy
We encourage and appreciate donations of books for the Uni Collection, as well as monetary contributions towards the purchase of books. Book donations are accepted with the understanding that books will be added to the Uni Collection only if deemed appropriate and needed as determined by Uni Librarians. Uni is a project of Street Lab, Inc, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donated books become the property of Street Lab and will be used where and how the Uni Librarians see fit.
Our priority is to make books in the Uni Collection available for public browsing. At any time, if a book can not be offered effectively to the public in the Uni Collection, Uni Librarians may dispose of it as they see fit, including but not limited to the following options: 1) donation to another nonprofit or library that can offer the book to the public, 2) sale of the book in a charitable book sale, with proceeds used to purchase new books for the Uni Collection.
All books accepted into the Uni Collection will be documented as such in the book itself and in the Uni’s online catalog. All donors will also be acknowledged on the Uni’s website. We cannot appraise the value of donated materials, but we can provide an acknowledgment. Donors should understand that over time, donated books will become well-worn from use by the public and may be damaged or lost.
