Donate a Book

Book Donation Policy

The Library welcomes acceptable donations. Among the criteria used to determine acceptability
are the following:

  • that the prospective donations fall within the scope of the Library’s collection policy
  • that the donated items do not unnecessarily duplicate materials already held
  • that the physical condition of the materials is acceptable. The Library will normally only accept undamaged materials, materials free of pests and materials which have not been significantly defaced
  • that the library is in a position to process and maintain the material
  • The librarian reserves the right to add donated items to the collection, offer them to other libraries (either overseas or local), place the items up for sale, or discard them.
  • Proceeds of book sales are directed back to the general Library fund.
  • Donations are not normally accepted if there are restrictions placed on the items use or location.
