Adopt a Book

Please help us preserve our collection

The Adopt-a-Book Program encourages donor support of library conservation efforts for fragile and damaged items. Your tax-deductible contribution enables us to preserve volumes for Vassar's current and future scholars. All donors will be recognized on this website and with special bookplates if requested.

Other ways of supporting our conservation efforts

If you would like to support our conservation efforts, please contact Ronald Patkus at or 845-437-5798. There are many books and manuscripts in a variety of subject areas and price ranges (starting at $200) that need treatment. Please note that it is possible to make a contribution over a period of time, or in collaboration with others.
