Donations

The library will gladly accept donations of books that are in usable condition. Not all accepted books, however, will be added to the library's collection. Upon acceptance, our librarians will evaluate each book's relevance to our collection; typically, the book will then either be added to the collection or sold in the library's semi-annual book sale. The donator can also opt to retrieve any books that are not added to the collection.

The library does not accept donations of magazines, journals, or newspapers in general. Exceptions can be made for complete runs, in good condition, of relevant journals not already owned by the library.

All donations must be accompanied by a completed Gift Book Form. You can obtain a copy of this form at the library, or you can download and print a copy here

 

Book Requests

The library gladly accepts requests for new book purchases. You can request a purchase by filling out this form.
