Giving to Kimbel Library
How do I donate to the library?
Thank you for your interest in making a gift to Kimbel Library. Coastal Carolina University welcomes gifts in the forms of endowments, bequests, special gifts, or gifts of books and equipment for the enhancement of the library and its collections. Your gift will enhance library services and programs, including building collections, improving facilities, and providing the technology needed to guarantee student success.
What types of donation does the library accept?
Kimbel Library welcomes gifts of books, manuscripts, and other library materials that support the academic programs offered by Coastal Carolina University. Gifts made to Kimbel Library add materials which otherwise could not be acquired through normal funding processes and, in turn, enhance the quality of the resources available for students, faculty, and the local community. Your support through gifts of library materials is very much appreciated.
