Bookplate Campaign Terms & Conditions
Bookplates can feature a person’s name and a 140 character optional message.
Please also remember to exercise good judgment when contributing written messages. The Library prohibits comments that are offensive or objectionable to others, that use inappropriate language, or that are off-topic. For this promotion, we will be reviewing content before it is placed in titles. We reserve the right to edit or delete personal content in a manner consistent with our mission and policies. We also ask that you do not insert your own or a third party's advertising, branding or other promotional content into any of your comments.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate requests for specific titles. Bookplates will be placed in a variety of titles from children's picture books to adult non-fiction.
There will be no tracking of which books bookplates are placed in.
Magazines, DVDs, CDs and other non-book formats are not included.
Donations are fully tax-deductible.
Bookplates will appear in books 4-6 weeks after the donation is made.
If you prefer, you may donate by mail or phone: The New York Public Library, Membership Office • 445 Fifth Avenue • New York, NY 10016 • 212.930.0653 • firstname.lastname@example.org
