The library accepts donations of new and used books, subscriptions, journals and magazines, audio recordings, videos and similar materials in good condition when it is determined that the materials will advance the mission of the library. Donated items become the property of the library and will not be returned to the donor. Upon request, the library will acknowledge receipt of donated items, but is unable to set fair market or appraisal values. If items are being donated to obtain a tax benefit, it is the donor’s responsibility to establish fair market value.
Monetary gifts, bequests and memorial or honorary contributions are particularly welcome. Materials purchased with such funds will be identified with special donor plates whenever possible. Upon request, notification of memorial or honorary contributions will be sent to the family of the person being recognized. Suggestions for subject areas in which purchases will be made are welcome and will be followed to the extent possible.
