While we appreciate your generousity, unfortunately, it is not possible for the Library to accept donated eBooks in any format.  While there are a number of factors that prohibit eBook donations, the most critical is licensing.

Library licensing agreements are quite different from individual licenses, and cannot simply be transferred or donated.  Making the issue even more complicated is the fact that libraries face restrictions from many publishers that do not apply to individuals, meaning some titles are not eligible to become library eBooks.

Since the "eBook & libraries world" is still so new and constantly evolving, it's possible this will change someday... but it might not be any time soon.
