Book Donations

The Director of Library Services has the authority to accept books and other materials on the condition that he/she makes whatever disposition is deemed advisable.  These donations become the sole possession of the library.  The Library will not accept any materials that are not outright gifts.

Donations of Books

The Library Board welcomes donations of books and materials to the collection.  Such materials are accepted in accordance with the following guidelines:

  • Condition of material.
  • Relevance of the material and accuracy of the information.
  • Relevance to community needs and interests.
  • The Director of Library Services can place limits on the amount of donated material.  As a guideline, and subject to the professional judgement of Library personnel, a limit of one to two boxes will be encouraged.
  • Donated materials do not duplicate existing Library collection materials. 

The Library Director reserves the right to sell, donate, share with another library, or recycle, any donated materials which are not ultimately added to the Library collection.
