Due to limitations of space, the acceptance of gifts must be selective. The same standards
will be used in accepting donated materials as are applied to purchases. Offers of
gift collections should be accompanied by a list including the titles, authors, and
dates of publication of the items. The library will send an acknowledgement letter
including the number of books donated or the items donated if a list has not been
provided. Library staff reserves the right to give away or dispose of unwanted gift
items. The appraisal of gift items for the purposes of income taxes is the responsibility
of the donor.
We are not able to accept:
Reader's Digest Condensed Books
Text books more than three years old.
Volumes for Scholars
Through the Volumes for Scholars program you can give a gift of knowledge by purchasing
a book for the DCC Library with a contribution of $40.00 or more. A special bookplate
placed in the inside front cover of the book will acknowledge your gift. You will
also receive a card from the Library noting the title of the book you purchased and
its catalog number. If you wish, you may choose a subject area that appeals to you.
