Guidelines for Donating Library Books

All books donated to the school library will be reviewed and processed by the School Librarian with the help of PSO library volunteers. For a book to be added to circulation, the final decision will be decided by the librarian. Any books not placed in the Archway Trivium West/Trivium Prep library will be donated to Maryvale Preparatory Academy, our sister school within the Great Hearts network. If the book is in deemed unusable for either school, it will be donated to the Valley Non-Profit Service Association. This local non-profit organization holds an annual VNSA Used Book Sale and all proceeds are given to Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation and Maricopa Literacy Volunteers.
