Donate materials to help expand our resources!
Decatur Public Library encourages and accepts donations of materials, with the understanding that the decision whether to add gifts to the collection will be based on the same criteria that govern purchased materials. The donor of gift materials does so with the understanding that the library reserves the right to assign gifts wherever needs exist and to dispose of gifts as it sees fit. Generally, gifts not added to the collection will be donated to the Friends of the Library for their book sale.
How to Donate Materials
Decatur Public Library and the Friends of the Library accept gifts of books, DVDs, or CDs. Simply leave materials on the loading dock or in the box to the left of the security gates when entering the library. We'll do the rest! If you require a receipt for your donation, please come to the administrative office on the 2nd floor.
Thanks for considering the Decatur Public Library!
