Gifts and Donations

The Art Circle Public Library welcomes gifts of books and other materials. The Library reserves the right to keep, discard, sell, or make other appropriate disposal of any books or materials that are donated as determined by its mission and needs.

Staff members review all donated materials for potential addition to the Library’s collections.  Materials may also be used to help the Friends of the Library hold successful book sales.  Funds raised at these sales support the addition of new material and other valuable library programs.  Donated material that will be sold at Friends’ book sales is not covered under this policy.

The Art Circle Public Library accepts gifts at its facility located at 3 East Street.  Customers are encouraged to call ahead.  Books donated in boxes are most helpful.
