Memorials & Donations

The Friends of the Carlisle Library accepts donations of money on behalf of the Library for the purchase of new books and other materials in memory of a relative or friend. An acknowledgment letter will be sent to the donor and honoree.

The selection of gifts shall be governed by the same principles and criteria used to select materials purchased for the Library. Gifts will be accepted on behalf of the Friends of the Carlisle Library that are determined to meet the purposes and needs of the Library. The Library will not estimate the value of the material donated.

The use and disposition of all gift materials shall be at the discretion of the Library Director and her delegates. They will make the final decision on the acceptance, use or disposition of the gift.

The Library retains unconditional ownership of the gift. Conditions cannot be imposed on any gift after it has been accepted by the Library.

The Library reserves the right to decide how the material will be displayed, housed and made accessible.

The Library will not accept on loan or deposit any books or other materials which are not gifts, except those which are intended for limited display.
