Library Policies

The following policies have been adopted:

Location - Main Library

Technology at the Library

The Library offers free use of a number of computers for both children and adults for Internet access, research, word processing and other applications, entertainment, and education. Library cards are generally required to use the computers but visitors to the area are welcome to use them after showing identification. All computer users must abide by our Computer Policies. Your Laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other wireless devices are welcome to use our wireless network! No library card is needed but our polices still apply.

Donated Books and Other Materials

The library graciously accepts donations of books, DVDs, and other materials. Donated materials may be added to the collection, resold to generate income for the library, or given by the library to other organizations. As a last resort donated materials which can’t be reused or resold may be discarded by the library.

Donated materials must be in reasonably good condition (not torn, wet, moldy, smelly, dirty, infested with vermin, etc.). The library does not accept donated magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias, or homemade videos or audios. Donations of other items (computers, furniture, artworks, items of historical interest, etc.) will be considered on a case by case basis by library management. Generally computers must be less than two years old to be considered.

Donated items must be brought to the library. Patrons needing assistance in unloading donated items, or with large numbers of items, should call the library in advance to make arrangements.

The value of donated materials may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for information. If requested, the library will provide a receipt for donated materials showing a general description and count; however, the library cannot provide a value for donations.
