Give to the Arboretum Library
In order to better service the Los Angeles area community, we are in the process of converting our card catalog from a manual format to an easy accessible digital resource. This means greater accessibility to our library for the general public. If you, your family, your friends, or your neighbors are interested in participating in a botanical or garden related project it will be easier to access the wealth of information we have available at The Arboretum Library. Converting the library to digital format is an extensive and all-inclusive project. If you have experience fundraising for a non-profit organization and would like to donate your time or you would like to make a monetary pledge to the Library please contact Susan Eubank.
The Arboretum Library has subscriptions to three hundred current periodical titles on subjects ranging from gardening, horticulture, botany, California native plant life, environmental issues, and agriculture. As a donation you might consider renewing a subscription or soliciting a magazine subscription for us.
New or used books and other reading materials are always welcome. Donations that do not fit into our collection or duplicate items we already own are sold at the Library’s Book Sales to raise funds for new purchases. When a book is donated to the library a special arboretum bookplate with the donor’s name will be included within the book. If you are wondering how you can help expand the library, please check out our Wish List. We also have a special Children's Wishlist that lists the Children's books The Arboretum Library needs most to support The Arboretum Bookworms Story Time.
Donations made to the Los Angeles Arboretum Foundation L.A.A.F (TaxID# 95-1582650) are tax-deductible. You will receive a receipt for your donation at the end of this transaction.
