8. Gifts

The Library will accept gifts of books and other print and non-print materials to be added to the collection with the understanding they meet the same standards as purchased materials. No conditions may be imposed on the Library relating to the donated books or materials after they have been accepted by the Library, and all donated items shall become the exclusive property of the Library. The Library reserves the right to determine the suitability of donated items and dispose of gifts not suitable for library use. The Library does not have staff with the expertise to value any donated materials and, therefore, can only acknowledge the fact that items were donated without the assigning of values.

Donations given to the Library for purchases of memorial books or honor books are welcomed. Unless titles are specified, most purchases are made in non-fiction. A donor may suggest the subject field and library location in which the book will be located.
