Cultivate The Alternatives Library Collection


The library collection is a public resource that promotes and advocates for sustainability, social justice, and the kind of curiosity that can change the world.

You're invited to help cultivate the collection at the Durland Alternatives Library by donating to library (see button below!) to help us keep the collection relevant and vibrant.

We also accept donations of used books to add to our collections, or to pass on to our Prisoner Express program -- feel free to email us at to arrange book drop-offs.

We appreciate any donations -- thanks in advance for your generosity and support of this community resource.

You can also donate by check!

Durland Alternatives Library is a project of the Center for Transformative Action, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, which accepts all funds on our behalf. Please makes checks out to the CENTER FOR TRANSFORMATIVE ACTION, with DAL in the memo line. (Having a check made out to CTA/DAL is also acceptable.) Send checks to:

Durland Alternatives Library
130 Anabel Taylor Hall
Ithaca, NY 14850

Thanks for getting involved!
