Osawatomie Public Library - Serving the Community Since 1889


Donations or Gifts
Gifts or donations of books or other materials are accepted with the understanding that they may be used or disposed of as the library determines is appropriate. Determining “appropriate” means using the same criteria set forth in this policy for the purchase of library materials. Gifts that are not added to the collection will be used for resale.

If requested, the library will supply a letter listing the number of items donated. The library may not provide (prohibited by law) an appraisal of the items for the donor (for tax purposes).

Gifts of items other than materials or money, not covered by written policies shall be considered by the director and the library board. Gifts made to the library become the sole property of the library and remain so until they are either added to the collection or until a decision is made as to the appropriate disposition of such items. 

Appropriated Cash Donations
If cash donations are made with requests for specific materials to be purchased, the Materials Selection and Collection Development Policy shall apply.
