Donations To Our Collection

Donations to our collection are always welcome! The librarian will assess the topic, scope, and age of the materials donated to determine if it will be a helpful and relevant source to add to our collection. Those who choose to donate are donating their materials with the understanding that not all of the donated materials may make it into our collection. The librarian reserves the right to retain or discard any donated materials. A nameplate with a recognition of your generous donation can be included in each material that will be added to the collection. Please let the librarian know if you would like this to be included.
