The Library gladly accepts and welcomes the support it receives from the citizens of this area in the form of gifts. The Library will accept used and new materials, gifts of money, real property, and/or stock if conditions of the gift are acceptable to the Longview City Council or its delegated representatives. However, the following policies apply to the acceptance of gifts:
Gifts of materials for the collection are subject to the same principles and standards of selection as outlined in the Collection Development Policy and applied to all materials added to the library’s collection. Because of the limitation of space, budget and staff, the library reserves the right to accept, sell, exchange, or discard, at its discretion, any unsolicited materials sent to the library. The library cannot guarantee that any gift will be part of the collection permanently. Once accepted, donations are the exclusive property of the library and are, therefore, subject to all library rules, regulations and procedures. Those making monetary donations may wish to recommend how their contributions are to be used.
Memorial donations are accepted to purchase new items for the Longview Public Library and Broughton Branch Library. Your donation is a splendid way to show your support of public libraries, to honor or memorialize a friend or loved one, and to show support of a special event. You may designate the item to be purchased, or suggest a subject area: history, children and youth, politics, the arts, religion, genealogy, etc. The library will comply with such requests whenever possible.
The Longview Public Library greatly appreciates the many generous donations made to the Memorial Fund. The many delightful and educational books purchased and received through these gifts have enhanced the Library’s collection, and for that we are truly grateful. All donations (monetary and gift) are processed in accordance with the Longview Public Library Collection Development Policy.
You can submit a donation online directly below or you can print out and submit the Donation Form. This form allows us to know the purpose of your gift, enables you to specify the kind of item to be purchased, and informs us of the people you would like notified about your gift. Donations can be dropped off at the Library, or can be mailed to:
