Every book has a story. We tell the story of how books are made and why that’s important to us today. Help us keep the story alive by donating.

The American Bookbinders Museum is grateful to all our supporters. Their generosity makes it possible to share the story of the book with you. Donations of any amount are kindly accepted.

Cash and in-kind donations help ABM expand its exhibits and programs. Help us reach more book lovers, students, and book artists. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donation may be tax-deductible.


Our collection grows thanks to the generous gifts of the book community. We accept bookbinding equipment, ephemera and books into our special collection. When accepting donations our staff considers if it fits ABM’s collection plan. We consider whether or not we have the resources to care for an item or collection. Please contact collections@bookbindersmuseum.org, or call us at (415) 824-9754 to discuss a potential donation. Note: ABM cannot accept delivery of unsolicited donations.
