GIFTS & DONATIONS
The Library gratefully accepts monetary donations to allow for the purchase of materials for the Library’s collection. Such donations will be applied to purchases in any area of the collection that the Director deems warranted at the time of donation. Donors wishing to have their donation applied to a specific area of the Library’s collection should discuss their wishes with the Library Director prior to donating. Monetary donations for which a donor wishes specific criteria to be attached, such as the naming of a room, use only for programming, facilities upgrade, or some other non-collection related donation should be directed to the Library Board of Trustees. It is the prerogative of the Library Director and/or the Library Board of Trustees to accept or reject any donation.
The Library gratefully accepts donated materials on a limited basis. Donated materials in good condition which meet a need or fill a hole will be added to the collection. Donated materials in good condition which do not meet a need or fill a hole will be added to the library’s book sale. Donated materials in poor condition will be recycled or sent to a third party seller. The Library will not provide an appraisal of the dollar value of any donated materials, however, upon request the Library will provide a receipt stating the quantity and type of materials donated. Donors are encouraged to call the library prior to donation of materials to determine if the library is able to accommodate the influx of donated materials at that time.
The Library gratefully accepts non-monetary/non-materials related donations on a limited basis. The donation of artwork, artifacts, landscaping plants, or some other type of object must be approved by the Library Board of Trustees. Upon acceptance, the Library will provide the donor with a receipt for the item(s) donated, however no appraisal of the dollar value of the donated item(s) will be included.
