      • The library reserves the right to decide what to do with your donations. We may decide to: add them to the library's collection; put them in the Friends of the Library Book Sale; discard them; or donate them to another library or organization.

      • The library requests that all donated materials come in a storage container. We will keep the container or box.

      • The library cannot provide a call back or return unused donations.

      • The library can give you a receipt for tax purposes, but cannot put a dollar amount on your donation.

      • The library may occasionally be unable to accept donations because of limited storage space. It is always best to call ahead.
