Leave a Legacy
Leave a lasting legacy in your community by including the library in your estate plans.
Donate New or Gently Used Books
The library welcomes donations of books and related library materials with the understanding that the library determines whether a donation conforms to the standards stated in the Collection Development Policy. The Director reserves the option to discard, exchange, or sell those items not incorporated into the general collection. The Library cannot make an appraisal of a gift for tax deduction or any other purpose, and shares no responsibility in the evaluation of the gifts. The Library cannot accept materials if the condition of acceptance requires permanent exhibition or retention. Memorial materials will be selected by the Library Director or his/her designee. The nature of the material will be based upon the needs of the library with consideration given to the interests of the deceased and the wishes of the donor.
The Library cannot accept the following items: textbooks more than five years old, damaged items, musty books, wet books, moldy books, dirty and/or smelly books, or condensed versions (such as Reader’s Digest condensed books), encyclopedias, records, and VHS tapes.
The library has limited space and resources to handle donations, but we agree that these materials should be handled responsibly. If you have books and other materials that the library cannot accept, please consider these sources to donate or recycle your books, as appropriate.
Join The Friends of The Library
The Library has an active Friends of the Library group that provides for many of the library’s needs not covered by the general budget. During the month of May the Friends coordinate a huge used book sale at the Library. The money raised by the Friends has purchased additional shelves, equipment, CDs, and to sponsor all of the library’s summer reading programs for children, teens and adults. If you have time to give and want to show support for the Library, please join the Friends. Membership information can be provided by contacting The Friends of the Library president Douglas Stump. Call the library for more information.
