Donate to the Collection

Poets House Poetry Collection

Have you searched the Catalog to see if your book or chapbook is in the collection? If it isn’t, we’d love to receive a copy. We’ll catalog the title, add a bookplate to reflect your donation, and add it to our library.

We rely on donations to help us build a comprehensive collection of poetry. If you’d like to donate a book—or many books—to Poets House, stop by and drop them off. Or you can mail a copy of your book to Poets House, Attn: Gina Scalise, Librarian, 10 River Terrace, New York NY 10282.

If we already have a copy of the title you wish to donate, we reserve the right to sell the duplicate copy, with proceeds benefiting Poets House.
