Donations

Library Donors Wall

The Library appreciates any monetary donations given through the Friends of the Park City Library. Donations may be made for specific purposes or simply to support the Library. All donations to purchase books to honor a person living or deceased will be acknowledged with a special book plate in each book purchased. Wooden volumes in the Donor Bookshelves may be inscribed with a donor’s name of choice on the spine for a donation of $250. Monetary bequests or endowments will be gratefully acknowledged.

The Library is grateful for gifts of new or used books. In accepting gift books, the Library reserves the right to decide which books should be added to the Library collection, which are given to other libraries, and which are sold by the Friends of the Library. Receipts for gifts indicate the type and number of items donated. The donor is responsible for determining the value of donated items.

The Library is grateful for donations of time by reliable volunteers to assist the staff and the Friends of the Library.
