Donate to the Library

Are you looking for a way to support the Bitch Media Community Lending Library? Consider donating books, zines, magazines, or DVDs to our collection. Our library depends on donations from Bitch supporters near and far. Whether you drop a zine by the library or ship a box of books internationally, we appreciate and treasure all of your donations.

While we rarely turn down donations, there are always certain sections of the library that are in need of some love. We are currently looking to expand our collections of poetry, DIY Guides, and Children's Literature. Perhaps you have some books that we're in need of packed away in boxes, or maybe you're interested in purchasing a few to send our way. Either way, here are some of the specific books that we're currently in need of:

This is in no way an exhaustive list — just because it's not on our list doesn't mean your donations aren't wanted in the library. But if you'd like to avoid sending us books that we already have, check out our library catalog. And if you're looking to donate a significant number of items to the library, get in touch with our Library Coordinator. Don't forget — Bitch Media is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, so donations to the library are tax-deductible.
