The West Feliciana Parish Library accepts donations of books and other materials from individuals or groups with the following understanding:  

 

  • For an item to be added to the library’s collection, it must meet the same selection criteria as purchased materials.

  • Donations become the property of the West Feliciana Parish Library and may be given to other libraries and nonprofit agencies, sold at the Friends of the West Feliciana Parish Library book sale, or discarded at the discretion of library staff.

  • Donated materials that have been added to the collection will not automatically be replaced if worn out, damaged, or lost, or if they have become obsolete. 

  • The Library Director makes the final decision on the acceptance, use, display, housing, access, withdrawal, or other disposition of material gifts. 

  • The library does not provide a monetary appraisal of any gift for income tax or other purposes but may provide a receipt for the number of items donated. 

  • The Library Director reserves the right to refuse any offered donation that will place a hardship on the library (repair, condition, storage, size, etc.)

  • Is the gift appropriate for a public library? 

  • Will the gift benefit the library and the community?
