The Carnegie Public Library accepts donations of materials. As many used items are not appropriate for inclusion in the library’s collection because of age, condition or duplication of materials already owned, the Director or designee will determine the acceptability of any donations for the library. Generally, items published fewer than 5 years ago make the best donations.
The library reserves the right to refuse any donations.
The library does not assess the value of donations or gifts. Upon request, a receipt verifying the number of items donated will be provided.
Donations that are not added to the library collection are either disposed of or sold by the Carnegie Public Library in an ongoing or annual sale.
Donation of Monies or Funds
Monetary gifts may be donated to the Carnegie Public Library.
Money donated to the library for gift books or memorials will be deposited in a legally established special revenue fund or the General Fund. Items purchased become the property of the library and may be disposed of accordingly. Gifts of this type will be acknowledged by letter from the Director or designee.
