Gifts & Other Materials

  • GIFT POLICY AND PROCEDURE

    While the Deep Springs Media Center appreciates any attempt by individuals or organizations to donate gifts or sponsor materials, it is important to recognize that all materials within the collection must meet the selection criteria for purchased items. The media specialist will decide either to return the gifts to the donor, pass them along to an appropriate organization, or dispose of them as needed.

    EXPENSIVE MATERIALS POLICY AND PROCEDURE

    At times, the media center may purchase items which are particularly expensive and whose loss would be a financial burden. In this event, these materials will be placed on reserve and usage may be overseen by media center staff. Individuals needing access will contact library personnel.

     

    FREE AND INEXPENSIVE MATERIALS POLICY AND PROCEDURE

    It is the policy of the media center to provide free and inexpensive items at no cost to library patrons. These items will be placed in the library with appropriate signs indicating their availability.
