Can I donate materials to the library?
At this time the library is NOT accepting donations of books for sanitation reasons. We hope to be able to accept your thoughtful donations again soon! 

Absolutely! The Library welcomes gifts of materials with the following guidelines: 

1. The Library retains the right to dispose of all materials at its own discretion. 

2. Materials must meet established selection criteria of the library. 

  • Magazines cannot be over 1 year old.
  • No VHS or cassette tapes.
  • No textbooks.
  • Items cannot have odors, mold, or mildew.

3. Donated items should be in good condition. Donations to the library are valid Federal Income Tax Deduction. 

However, please note the following points: 

1. A form will serve as a receipt signed by library staff for donation. 

2. The library cannot assume responsibility for valuing gifts. 

3. In the event of a tax audit, the burden of proof for the claimed value of the donation rests with the donor.
