In accepting a donation of materials, the library reserves the right to decide whether items should be added to the collection. If donated books and other materials are not added to the collection, these items will be sold on our book sale cart.
The library cannot assess the value of a donation. There is a donation form that can be completed for your records. It is the donor s responsibility to determine the value of the donation or use an independent appraiser to do it for them.
We do not accept:
- Anything damaged, or in poor physical condition
- Anything damp, dirty, or moldy

Due to space limitations we cannot accept more than 2 paper grocery bags (or similar-size boxes) of donated items per person per day. If you are interested in donating more than that to the library please call 269-349-7775 ext. 3166 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
