Gift Book Polilcy

Sherrod Library gratefully accepts donations of books and other library materials. Gifts become the property of Sherrod Library, which reserves the right to determine if the items are retained and where they will be located. Materials not added to the collection are handled as surplus property. An online guide to frequently asked questions about rare books and book values can be found at Your Old Books

Gifts to the library may qualify as a deduction for income tax purposes. Upon request we will provide an acknowledgement of the quantity and type of material donated. However, we are unable to make lists of titles or establish the fair market value of items. This responsibility lies with the donor. Please refer to IRS Publications 561 and 526 available online at

To make arrangements for donating books, contact the Sherrod Library Content Services.
