The library accepts gifts of materials when acquisition of the materials will enhance the library's collections.
Gift materials should be in good condition and relevant to the collection. The library reserves the right to review all gifts before acceptance. When accepted, gifts become the property of the Franco Library with the understanding that they are to be used for the benefit of the library. The library reserves the right to determine retention, location, cataloging, and other issues related to the gift's use or disposition.
At the donor's request, gifts will be acknowledged in writing. In keeping with professional guidelines and with federal law, the library cannot be responsible for the evaluation or appraisal of gifts. The Internal Revenue Service considers the library to be an interested party, which therefore precludes appraisals made by Franco Library. For specific questions regarding charitable donations, donors should consult the IRS or a tax expert.
