Adopt a Book

The Adopt a Book Program supports the work of our Preservation/Conservation team and helps subsidize the costs associated with the conservation of “at-risk” materials.

You can adopt a book, manuscript, map, or other item from our listed collections, which include MaritimePirates, and Maps. When you adopt an item, your donation goes towards the cost of preservation and conservation materials. Your support will be recognized and documented in the cataloging record for that item and on the Adopt a Book webpage.

By supporting conservation work such as rehousing, re-matting, and general maintenance for individual pieces, you have the opportunity to be part of preserving history at East Carolina University and ensuring that these rare books, manuscripts, and photographs are available for use by future generations of ECU students and researchers
