Donating to the Library

We are NOT currently accepting donations of books, books on CD, music CDs and DVDs at this time because of our recent renovations, sorry for any inconvenience.

Donations of Materials: The Library accepts donations of books, books on CD, music CDs, and DVDs in good condition. If the items are not kept for the library's collection, they will be sold at the Friends of the Library book sale. The library does not accept donations of textbooks, magazines, encyclopedia sets, Reader's Digest Condensed Books, cassettes, books on tape, or videotapes.

Donations are accepted year-round and may be dropped off at any time during regular library hours. Please do not leave donations outside the library or in the book drop. If you are donating a large number of items, please call ahead.

Receipts are available upon request for donations. Please note that we cannot appraise the value of donated items and receipts will reflect the description of the donation, not a monetary value.

Monetary Donations: Contributions in amounts less than $1,000 will be gladly accepted and used to purchase materials for the library. Please click here to read the full library policy on acceptance of gifts, as adopted by the Board of Directors on December 2, 2004.

The library accepts memorial and honorary donations as well as gifts in commemoration of special events. All memorial and honorary items will be marked with a gift plate inscribed with the name of the donor and/or the honoree and appropriate acknowledgement will be sent.

"Love Your Library" Magazine Campaign: The library has an annual campaign to raise money to offset the cost of our periodical subscriptions. Donors may choose one of the magazine titles offered by the library and donate the cost of an annual subscription. Please note that subscription titles are chosen by the library staff in accordance with our materials selection policy and donors must choose from those titles. Every donation helps alleviate the strain on our limited magazine budget.
