May I donate items other than books to the library?
Yes you may, but you will need to understand our space limitations and the library's responsibility for donations: It is better to ask first if the library has a purpose for the donation:Gift Policy and Donor’s Acknowledgement Form

The Indiana Free Library Welcomes Your Gifts…
The Indiana Free Library encourages donations that support our mission.
The Indiana Free Library reserves the right to accept or decline any and all materials donated or gifted to the library.
Gifts of tangible personal property that are accepted by the library shall become the unconditional property of the library.
The Indiana Free Library shall have the right to make all decisions with respect to the retention, storage, processing, use, and disposition of any donated/gifted materials. Materials gifted, including portions of collective gifts, may be exchanged with other libraries, offered for sale, or otherwise disposed of at the discretion of the Library Board.
Donors are granted the same right to access and use materials they have donated as other members of the public (i.e., materials may be accessed after they have been processed, during normal business hours, and in accordance with the Library’s then-current rules and regulations).
Any sale of donated or gifted items shall be conducted by an Ad Hoc Committee in an attempt to insure that the Library obtains the fair market value of any gifted and/or donated item to be sold.
