Donations & Memorials
Gifts of books and other resources are accepted with the understanding that they may be used or discarded at the library’s discretion. New titles acquired in this manner are subject to the basic standards of selection. Replacements and duplicate copies are added to the collection if needed. The cost of processing and the availability of shelving space are also factors in determining the acceptance of gifts. The library does not provide evaluations of gifts for tax deductions or other purposes. For specific guidelines by format please consult our Materials Donation Policy
The library is pleased to receive donations for the purchase of memorials. Every effort is made to select an appropriate purchase in a subject area of your designation.
