Gift Donations

Due to severe space limitations, as well as labor and processing costs, the Library is unable to place all donated items into the collection.  Furthermore, donations with “strings attached,” such as an obligation to place them in the collection, will not be accepted.

  • All donated materials become the library’s property to use or not use as it sees fit. Materials not incorporated into the collection may be distributed as follows:
  • Placed in the library’s paperback exchange.
  • Given to a private organization (such as the Hickam Library Friends).
  • Recycled or disposed of by other means at the librarian’s discretion.
  • Donations are used primarily for:
  • Supplementing copies of bestsellers during peak demand periods.
  • Replacing old or out of print classics or historical materials that are in poor condition.
  • “Swapping Out” popular titles not cost effective to repair.
  • “Filling Gaps” in popular children’s series.
  • Resale value for charitable contributions: The donor is responsible for obtaining an appraisal or resale value of the items being offered.
