Typewriter Campaign 2024


Do you have a typewriter that is collecting dust in your basement or attic?

Please consider a donation to the IU Book Lab!

We are currently building a teaching collection of typewriters for classroom use. The Book Lab would love to have any of the following:

  • Mechanical typewriters in fair to good working condition
  • Typewriter ribbons
  • Bottles of stamp ink
  • Typewriter keys, typebars, typewheels or type balls
  • Posters, user manuals, or other print materials related to typewriters           


Please write to to arrange pickup or delivery
