Donations of books or other materials will be accepted when space allows. Books donated to the Library will be processed and placed on the shelves, used in book sales, or discarded in a manner determined by the Director or Branch Manager of the Williams County Public Library. All gifts must be unqualified. Materials not added to the collection will not be returned unless requested by the donor.
The Williams County Public Library will not determine a monetary value for gifts. The appraisal of a gift to the library for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor, since it is the donor who benefits from the tax deduction.
A Donated Materials Acknowledgement Form will be filled out when accepting gift donations so that thank you letters can be sent.
Any staff member can accept donations however, the Director or Branch Manager has final approval in deciding whether or not to add an item to the collection.
