Donation Policy

Thank you for your generosity to the Swansea Public Library!

Monetary donations are always welcome, please make checks payable to Swansea Public Library Gift Fund

We have found it necessary to place some limits on what we can accept for our collection and our small revolving book sale. The Swansea Public Library will accept books that have been published in the last two years, and are in excellent physical condition, as determined by library staff. The Library can provide a receipt for your records, indicating the number of items donated to us. We are unable to provide any further written acknowledgement for donations, nor do we possess the qualifications to appraise the value of materials. We have to be selective because of storage limitations and the labor involved in sorting so many items. Materials in poor condition (moldy, torn, soiled, water damaged, etc.) cannot be accepted. Encyclopedias, reference materials, text books, or artwork cannot be accepted.

 Magazines-we accept all gently used magazines for our free magazine swap rack.

 Memorial Donations are possible please contact the Library Director, Cindy St. Amour for more information.
