Support
          Your
                   Library





Thanks for your interest in supporting the Library.  Your support is integral to the vitality of the Library.

Whether you're able to help with volunteering, donating books, donating funds or by voicing your support with the Macon County Commissioners, Mayor, City Manager and CIty Council--it's all important!

How do I donate materials?

The Library accepts donations of gently used materials. We will evaluate the material to see if it will be added to the collection. Normal collection procedures apply to all donated materials that are added to the library.  Not all donations are added to the library's collection. If items are deemed inappropriate for the collection they will be discarded. Please remember that when we receive items that are not useful for the library it is an expense to us to discard the items.

How to donate items: All donated books must be brought to the library. Please mark the box "donations."  If you wish to receive a donation receipt please call 334-727-5192 to arrange a drop-off time so you can receive a donation receipt.

Materials needed: gently used good fiction, biography, history, or other general topics. We will also accept commercially produced CDs, Videos and DVDs.

Materials NOT accepted: NO damaged materials of any kind, NO textbooks, NO magazines, NO encyclopedias, NO condensed books, NO personally-recorded videos, CDs or DVDs, NO cassettes or eight-track tapes. Donations of these items cannot be added to the library's collection; they end up costing the library money since we have to discard them at our expense.

Donating Materials as a Memorial:  We will add materials to the Library collection as memorials. In this situation we prefer to add new materials that we purchase and we will place a bookplate acknowledging the donation.
