Lyons Public Library Donation Policy



The Lyons Public Library appreciates donations of materials from the public. The following guidelines have been put in place to assist both library staff and persons making donations.
Due to limited staff time, donations will be accepted on Wednesday or Saturday, during library open hours, preferably at least 1 hour after opening and one hour before closing. These are our busiest times.

Materials must be in new or nearly-new condition.

The Library reserves the right to accept, decline, discard, or sell through the Friends of Lyons Library any donations.

If you desire a receipt for tax purposes, please provide in writing the number of hardbacks, paperbacks, CD’s and/or DVD’s you are donating with your name and mailing address. The Library cannot asses a dollar value; please consult your tax adviser.

                       Fiction hardcover and paperback books- 10 years old or newer, unless part of a series

                        Nonfiction hardcover and paperback books- 10 years old or newer, unless historical

                       CD’s- Music or books, undamaged in original case with jacket
