The Library is happy to accept donations of materials and monetary gifts to support its mission and programs. Donors are vital to the overall support of the Library and are a valued part of the Springdale Public Library community. Find out more information below about making a gift to the Library.
Donate to the Springdale Public Library Foundation
In order to maintain the quality of service Springdale and surrounding area citizens have come to expect from the Springdale Public Library, the Library formed the Springdale Public Library Foundation in 2004. The Foundation seeks to enrich (not replace) traditional tax-based funding that will provide the necessary financial resources to achieve a wide margin of excellence in the books, materials, programs and technology tools offered by the Library.
You can create the future by contributing to the Springdale Public Library Foundation. A gift to the Foundation is an enduring gift to the community. The Foundation provides a vehicle for tax exempt gifts that enhance the delivery of superior services. Please contribute today.
Please download and print the Gift Form (PDF) that you can use to either contribute to the Foundation or to designate your gift as an honorarium or memorial.
Donate Materials to the Springdale Public Library
Springdale Public Library welcomes gifts of print and non-print materials such as books, audio books, videos, CDs, DVDs, etc. All donated materials become the property of the Library and may only be accepted unconditionally. The Library applies the same criteria from its Collection Development policy in evaluating gift materials as applied to purchases. Donated materials may be withdrawn and disposed of in the same manner as purchased materials. The Library cannot accept responsibility for notifying donors of withdrawal or replacement of gift items.
Materials not added to the Library collection may be sold at the Friends of the Springdale Public Library Bookstore or book sale.
Generally, the Library does not accept textbooks, condensed (Reader’s Digest) books, magazines, or items that are in poor physical condition.
Gifts are tax deductible as provided by law. As the recipient of a gift, the Library cannot assign a market value to donated materials. For tax purposes it is the donor’s responsibility to assign and document value for tax reporting. On request, a receipt will be provided describing the number and format of donated materials.
Materials that do not sell in the bookstore may be sent to Better World Books for online selling to support literacy programs.
