Collection Development Policy

Book Donations to the Library Policy

The Newton Gresham Library retains the right to accept or reject any offer of a donation of books or other information materials to the library.

Materials donated to the library will be routed to the librarian subject selector who oversees the Library of Congress subject area a material is classified in. The subject selector decides whether or not to add materials to the collection.

The Library retains the right to dispose of materials not added to the collection as it sees fit (generally donated to other libraries or recycled).

Exceptions to this policy may be granted by the Executive Director of Library Services. 

To donate books or other materials, please contact Michael Hanson, Head of Library Technical Services at
