Donation and Gift Policy

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Person County Public Library. The library welcomes monetary gifts and material donations. The library reserves the right to accept or decline acceptance of any gift. Upon receiving the donation, it becomes the sole property of the Person County Public Library. The library reserves the right to decide the disposition of each gift. The library accepts gifts according to the following guidelines:

Monetary Gifts: The library welcomes and appreciates monetary contributions. The gift will be placed in an operational line where funds are needed at the discretion of the Library Director and Assistant Director.

Gifts of Materials:

The library accepts gifts of gently used books, DVDs, and CDs. The same evaluative criteria that are applied to selection of purchased materials are used to decide whether or not donated items will be added to the Library’s collection. Items that are not added to the collection will be offered at the Friends of the Library book sale fundraisers. The library will not accept the following items: textbooks, magazines, or encyclopedia sets. All materials must be clean and in good condition. The library will not accept mildewed, badly torn, or dirty items.

Please bring donations in a sturdy box for easy storage. The library regrets limited staff and storage to be able to immediately empty boxes/containers to return to donor.

Please limit your donations to three boxes per month in order for staff to review and store.

Items that are not added to the collection become part of the library’s book sales, which generate funds for the purchase of new materials.

Gifts of Personal Property: Because the library does not serve the function of a museum, gifts of items for permanent display or preservation are not accepted unless the item is specifically related to the Person County Public Library.
