Gifts, Memorials & Other Donations

Due to the size, nature, and staffing of The Library at Cedar Creek Lake, the Library should not, and cannot, act as a museum or research facility. The Library does accept gifts of books, periodicals, and other materials with the understanding that they will be added to the Library collection when and if needed.

  1. The Library at Cedar Creek Lake shall have the right to accept or refuse all donations to the Library. The Library Director may accept books, periodicals, videos, and audiocassettes. The Library Board of Directors evaluates more special or unusual items (furnishings, paintings and personal collections.)
  2. Materials received will become the property of The Library at Cedar Creek Lake.
  3. All books and materials are accepted with the understanding that the Library reserves the right to make such disposition as is fitting of duplicates and titles not needed by the Library.
  4. It is the policy of the Library not to accept special collections on the condition that they be kept together as a separate physical entity. Material will be accepted only with the understanding that it may be integrated into the general collection.
  5. When the Library receives a cash gift for the purchase of materials, selection will be based primarily on the needs of the Library.
  6. Donors wishing a receipt for donated items are to prepare their own lists of items donated. No estimate of value or record of items will be furnished by the Library. A donor of a rare item or one of unusual value should employ an appraiser for tax purposes.
  7. The Library reserves the right to decide the conditions of display, housing, and access to the materials.
  8. When gift materials are deemed no longer useful, the library will dispose of them on the same basis it disposes of other materials.

Monetary Donations:

A donor of a book in memory of or in honor of a person must fill out The Library at Cedar Creek Lake Book Donation Form. The check is made payable to The Library at Cedar Creek Lake.
The form and the cash/check should be given to the Library Director.

A letter of acknowledgement is sent to the donor and the honoree.

A special bookplate with the name of the donor and honoree is placed in the front of the book. Once processing is completed, the book is added to the collection.

Gift Books:

The Library at Cedar Creek Lake will have the right to accept or refuse all donations made to the Library. The Library Director makes the final decision on accepting donations.

The decision to include the materials in the Library's collection will be based on the same principles of selection that are applied to purchases of materials by the Library. In addition, consideration will be given to the number of copies of the item currently in the collection and the physical condition of the gift materials.

All books and materials are to be accepted with the understanding that the Library reserves the right to make such disposition as is fitting of duplicates and titles not needed in the collection. The Library will dispose of all gift materials which are rejected to the best advantage.

The Library will not accept storage responsibility of historical documents or objects owned or controlled by groups or individuals.
