Donations to the Marion Public Library
Marion Public Library encourages and appreciates donations of books and other materials which are useful and in good condition. Ownership of donated items transfers immediately and unconditionally to the Library. Items may be added to the collection, donated to the Friends of the Library and Museum for sale, donated to other institutions, or discarded. Donated materials shall meet the same criteria as purchased materials for addition to the collection. Materials will not be accepted with restrictions as to location or use.
Receipts acknowledging gifts of materials are given to those who request them; the Library cannot, however, make any determination as to the value of gifts. A list must accompany the gift if the donor requires itemization.
Guidelines for donating materials to the Library:
- All gifts materials should be in boxes.
- Materials must be clean and in good condition. Current materials that are marked, yellowed, musty, or damaged will not be accepted. Historical materials will be considered on an individual basis.
- Standard encyclopedia sets should not be older than ten years and should be complete.
- Textbooks, as a rule, are not accepted.
- Readers Digest condensed books are not accepted. Patrons are encouraged to donate these to other organizations.
Please make sure all donated items are clean and in good condition.
Donors can also contribute money to the library’s endowment fund, the “Grant County Community Foundation Library Fund,” which is administered by the Grant County Community Foundation. Completed checks should be made out to the “Marion Public Library Fund” and mailed to the Grant County Community Foundation at 505 West 3rd Street, Marion, IN 46952.
