SPRINGFIELD CITY LIBRARY
220 State Street Springfield, Massachusetts 01103 (413) 263-6828
The library selectively accepts gifts of books, periodicals, audio and video recordings, and other material for public use. In accepting gifts it is the library's policy that:
1. The appraisal of a gift to the library for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor.
2. The library, in accepting the gift, obtains free and complete legal title to it.
3. The library reserves the right to determine housing and location of the material.
4. The library will determine whether or not material should be added to the collection. If, for some reason, it is decided that the materials should not become a part of the collection (e.g., duplicate copy, outside collecting area of the library, poor condition), the library reserves the right to dispose of the material in the most advantageous manner possible.
Gifts may be accepted on bases other than the above at the discretion of the Springfield Board of Library Commissioners.
