Gifts and Donations

The Center Moriches Free Public Library welcomes financial and material donations.

Financial Donations

All gifts will be used at the Library’s discretion unless the donor requests a special usage agreement. For donations of $10,000 or less this agreement can be made between the donor and the Director. For gifts of more than $10,000 the Board of Trustees must approve the agreement.

Materials Donations

The Library may accept donations of library materials. The Library will choose to accept materials based primarily on the condition of the item, the popularity of the item, the accuracy and currency of the information contained in the item and whether the item compliments the current holdings in the Library’s collections.

The Center Moriches Free Public Library retains full control over all donated materials. Donated items are added to the Library’s collection, given to the Friends of the Center Moriches Library or other institutions or disposed of in other ways at the sole discretion of the Library. No agreement will be made to waive this control.

The Library does not provide pick-up service for donated materials with exception of special collections to be determined by the Library Director.

If requested, the Library will acknowledge all donations in writing. Only in the case of financial gifts will monetary values be assigned. Monetary values of materials cannot be assigned. It is the responsibility of the donor to have materials appraised before donating them to the Library.
