Valente Italian Library

by Jean Marie Carey on January 4, 2014

The Valente Italian Library at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, boasts the largest collection of books in the United States devoted specifically to the study of Italian history and culture. During 2012-2013 substantial donations of books were received from the estates of historians A. William Salamone and Patricia H. Labalme.  Past donors of significant numbers of books in the field of Italian history have included Gene Brucker, Sebastian de Grazia, Donald R. Kelley, Benjamin Kohl, and Paul Grendler.  All donations are tax-deductible at fair market value.  The Valente Library collects books, documents and artifacts in all areas of Italian and Italian American culture.  Gifts from libraries that are downsizing are welcome.  All books receive bookplates stating the name of the donor.  For further information, please contact Bill Connell.
