A Gift to the Library is a Gift to the Community
How can you make a difference in the lives of others and help build a stronger community for everyone? Consider an investment in your community's future with a gift in honor of a friend or loved one to the Logan County Libraries. The library enriches the lives of everyone in our community, regardless of age or economic circumstance. People come to the library everyday to explore new ideas, improve their lives, build a better future and enjoy a unique sense of community. The library is a place where people can go when they have few resources and no other place to turn. Patrons interested in contributing to the library should email Judith Goodrich or call (937) 599-4189.

The Library encourages the interest and involvement of citizens and organizations in its service program through contributions of book and non-book materials for collections, appropriate gifts which will enhance the physical environment, and bequests, trusts, or donations of monetary or other assets for Library purposes. Once a gift is accepted by the Library it will not be returned.
Gifts of miscellaneous books or other materials are accepted with the understanding that items which are not added to the collections will be disposed of at the discretion of the Library.
Gifts of a more specific nature, such as works of art, furniture, portraits, antiques, equipment, special collections, stocks, and real property, shall be referred to the Director for acceptance in consultation with the Board of Trustees. When funds are donated for specific purposes, the amount and nature of the expenditure must be approved in advance. Substantial cash offerings, securities, and bequests will be handled by the Director, who, with the Board of Trustees will work out terms of acceptance that are compatible with the library policies, the donor’s intent, and applicable laws.
The Library welcomes cash gifts for purchase of library materials given in recognition of individuals or organizations and will try to accommodate the subject or title preferences of the donor. The names of the donor(s) and the individuals or organizations recognized by the gift will be listed on a bookplate and affixed to the materials if desired.
The Library will, if requested, provide a written acknowledgement of the receipt of the gifts, but in accordance with income tax regulations will leave the determination of a value of the donation to the donor.
The Library accepts memorial donations for deceased as well as to honor those who are still living. Memorials are also accepted for pets. Patrons interested in this service should email Adult Services or call (937) 599-4189.
