Policy on Gifts

Policy on Gifts

The Northville District Library encourages gifts of money, materials and property. However, gifts may not be used to establish a program which the Library is not able to maintain.

Individuals wishing to make a monetary gift to the Library may suggest the area for which they would like the gift to be used.

The Library retains unconditional ownership of all gifts and reserves the right to decide conditions of display and access. Gift materials may be added to the Library’s collection and retained as long as they meet the same standards established for purchased materials. Materials not meeting these standards may be discarded following library policy.

The Library does not appraise or otherwise put a value on gifts.
