The Library welcomes gifts or donations. Monetary contributions are utilized for materials, projects or programs. All donations provided will be reviewed by the Director and an appropriate use of that donation will be decided upon.

Monetary donations received for the purpose of honoring or memorializing an individual will be reviewed by the Director. If a specific area of interest is provided, the Library will do its best to purchase in that designated category in a timely fashion. Donations can simply be requested also to be spent on areas of need for the Library. A special bookplate will be placed in the item(s) purchased.

All donations are tax deductible. The Library will furnish a statement for tax purposes, but does not place a financial value on used items or other gifts.

DONATIONS-002: Books or Other Materials

Donations of books and other materials may be made directly to the Salina Public Library. The Library will not accept materials that are not outright gifts and it reserves the right to assign any of its materials wherever the need is the greatest. All gifts must be in usable physical condition. Because of limitations of space, money, and staff, the Library reserves the right to accept or discard, at its discretion, any materials given to the Library. Because of wear and theft, the permanence of gifts is not guaranteed. The Library is not liable for damages resulting from theft, fire, vandalism or other loss to materials.

Acceptance of donations of equipment, real estate, works of art, collections, etc. will be determined by the Director or Library Board based on their suitability to the purposes and needs of the Library.
