Donations to the Lincoln County Public Libraries are always appreciated and a receipt may be issued for donated materials on request. However, appraisals cannot be given for donated materials.
Book, Audio, and Video Donations
Donations of materials including books and video are important to our library collection. Donated materials may be added to the library collection in Libby, Troy, or Eureka. Materials not added to the collection are put into book sales that support the Friends of the Library and library programming throughout the county.
Financial donations help the libraries offer the best possible services, materials, and programs to our patrons. Contributions in any amount are appreciated and donors are encouraged to place as few restrictions as possible on these gifts so that funds remain flexible and effective in addressing current library needs. Donations to the Lincoln County Public Libraries Foundation are tax deductible.
Those who wish to sponsor a specific area of the collection or to include the Lincoln County Public Libraries in their estate planning should contact Library Director, Rick Ball.
Adopt a Magazine
Patrons can adopt a magazine at their home library (Libby, Troy, or Eureka). Adopt a Magazine campaigns run in each library location during November and December. However, magazines not sponsored during the holidays can be adopted at any time of the year.
