Donations, Memorials, and In-Honor Gifts

The Library welcomes donations of needed material or funds for the purchase of such material. The Library reserves the right to evaluate and dispose of donations in accordance with the criteria applied to purchased material. The Library discourages the attachment of conditions to donations, and no conditions may be imposed relating to any donation after its acceptance by the Library.

Donations which do not comply with the Library’s objectives and policies will be declined and, when possible, referred to a more appropriate recipient.

Books and other items donated by the public are added to the library collection if suitable and in excellent condition. Donated items not needed for the library collection are given to the Friends of the Library for use in the annual book sale if they are suitable.

To donate, please email donations@knoxlib.org or call (865) 215-8716.
