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.
