Donating to the Library

Monetary Donations/ Honorariums

We also accept monetary donations as gifts, memorials or honorariums.

You will be redirected to an online portal for processing your request.   A full copy of our Gifts Policy is available at the circulation desk or from the Library Director.

Donating Materials

We always appreciate donations of books, magazines, and audiovisual items. They must be in good condition and not too out of date.  Please call the Circulation Desk (489-2070) for exact details on what we will accept. We do reserve the right to decide whether donated items should be added to the collection or sold at the annual book sale. If you wish, the staff at the circulation desk will give you a donation acknowledgment form. We cannot give appraisals of donated materials.

  • Magazines (unless they are crafts, cooking, or home improvement and that are no more than 2 years old)
  • Dirty, wet, moldy, stinky items of any kind

  • DVDs or CDs that are damaged or dirty
