Gifts and Special Collections Policy

The Mathews Memorial Library welcomes gifts and memorials which enhance the value of the collection. The judgment of the Library Director or designate will control the manner in which the donations of private collections are filed, catalogued, displayed, or discarded. Upon request, the Library will provide a receipt for tax purposes. It will be the responsibility of the donor to assign a dollar value to the gift.

Except for temporary exhibit purposes, the Library cannot accept storage responsibility for valuable documents or objects which are owned or controlled by other groups or individuals.

This policy was adopted January 2017.
