The library is grateful for help with donations of books or money!  Money donations will  be used to buy new books, equipment, or furniture for the library, unless otherwise specified.  Used books that are donated might be added to the collection if found to meet Collection Development guidelines, or they might be sold at a Friends of the Library Used Book Sale.  The official policy, found in Appendix D, of the library is:

Gifts, donations, memorials and honorariums

  • The library director or board of trustees reserve the right to accept or reject any/all gifts and donations or dispose of any gifts or donations in line with the library policies.

  • In compliance with IRS regulations, the library director cannot appraise any donated materials but may issue a statement acknowledging receipt of gifts or donations.
