Gifts and Donations

Materials

The Franklin Park Public Library District accepts gifts of books, periodicals that are less than three years old, and audiovisual materials, with the explicit understanding that items will be added to the collection only if they are needed and only if they meet the same selection criteria applied to regular purchases. The Library does not accept textbooks.

A receipt will be given at the time of donation if requested. This receipt will list only the number and type of items donated. The Library does not assign monetary value to donated items.

Monetary Gifts

The Franklin Park Public Library District accepts monetary gifts. If the purpose of the gift is unspecified, the Library will apply it where it deems it most needed. If the Library receives a monetary donation for the purchase of materials as a memorial or for other purpose, the general nature or subject area of the materials to be purchased will be based upon the wishes of the donor. Donors may select specific titles, subject to approval by the Executive Director. The selected title must meet the same selection criteria applied to regular purchases.
