Donations

The Wolbach Library accepts gifts-in-kind, or non-monetary donations, which are compatible with the Library's collecting philosophy and enhance and complete its selection effort. 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 or to exchange, sell, or discard them as appropriate. The Library accepts donated collections which must be kept intact or items offered conditionally, temporarily, or with restrictions only in unusual cases of exceptionally rare and valuable items.

Appraisal and documentation of materials for tax purposes is the sole responsibility of the donor. The library can help connect you with qualified appraisers. 

All donors will be asked to complete a short Donation Agreement when they make donations to Wolbach Library.
