Please be notified that the donated books are not assured for housing, retaining, or displaying. The Library's selection and weeding principles apply to gifts in the same manner as they apply to purchase selections. Additionally, the Library accepts new or gently used hardcover and quality paperback books, including media material deemed to be in good condition, and does not accept textbooks or material with highlighting or handwriting. And if it is handy for the donor to provide a list of the material, it may be checked against the Library catalog before making a decision. But the list is a must for the bulk donation (more than a box). If you are considering making a large donation of material, email a list or description of the items to firstname.lastname@example.org. Unselected books will not be returned.
