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The Library will not accept storage responsibility of historical documents or objects owned or controlled by groups or individuals.
