Gifts are accepted based upon the needs of the library and pursuant to the Materials Selection Policy. The library encourages and accepts gifts with the understanding that the materials will be integrated into and retained in the collection if they meet the same criteria outlined in this policy.
Appraisals cannot be given for the value of materials. Receipts can be given for the number of items donated. Money gifts for purchasing specific materials for the library will be accepted when the requested materials are consistent with the standards and criteria of the library as outlined in this policy. Donors are encouraged to place few restrictions on these gifts so that use of funds will be flexible and effective.
