Donation Policy

Children playing Jenga

Atwell Public Library accepts donations of new and or gently used materials including books, recorded books, music CDs, and DVD/Blu-rays. Any other form of donated item such as craft supplies, puzzles, or games, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Donations can be of any reading level or in any world language. Donated materials become the property of the Atwell Public Library and will be evaluated based upon our collection development policy and may be added to the permanent collection, added to the Hutchins’s Community Libraries, sold, discarded, or donated to another non-profit institution or library.

All proceeds from the sale of donated materials benefit the Atwell Public Library. Donations added to the collection may be subsequently withdrawn when they are worn or when their content is no longer current. If you need a receipt for tax purposes the library will provide the form, but the donor must assign a dollar value to the donations.
