FAQ

Can you state the value of the materials I have donated to the Library for tax purposes?

The John G. Wolbach Library accepts gifts-in-kind, or non-monetary donations, which enhance and complete its collection. The Library reserves the right to limit such gifts to those which substantially benefit the Library and are cost effective to receive, catalog, process, maintain and preserve. The Library, through its governing institutions, assumes ownership of all donations and reserves the right to add donated materials to its collections, and to exchange, sell, or discard them as appropriate.

How do I make photocopies at the Wolbach Library?

There are two photocopiers at Wolbach. One photocopier has the added capability for copying pages in bound volumes.  The other photocopier, besides usual copier functions, has a document feeder for copying multiple 1 or 2 sided pages. This copier also can copy in color to a flash drive, or print (black and white only) from a flash drive. There is no charge to use the copiers.
