The board of trustees, the staff and patrons of the library are grateful for donations received. The library board of trustees accepts gifts with the understanding that it may utilize them in accordance with the library’s needs and that they become the property of the library. The director shall decide whether or not to add gift materials to the collection. The board of trustees reserves the right to refuse gifts. Library staff aid in the selection of appropriate material for a memorial or recognition gift to the library.
All monetary gifts received by the library will be placed into the library savings accounts or invested in accordance with the library investment policy. The board of trustees will determine the eventual use of this money unless restricted by the donor.
Upon request, the library will furnish a receipt for donated books or materials but it will not place a cash value on them.
