Donation Policy

Direct Monetary Donations

Donations can be made to any branch or to the Hawkins County Library System to purchase library materials, equipment, or to sponsor library programs.

Memorial & Honor Contributions

Gifts in Memory or in Honor of a family member or friend are welcomed. Contributions can be made to any branch to purchase library materials. There are several ways to make a contribution to your library:

Memorial Book

Memorial books may be purchased with contributions. A memorial book is a simple, thoughtful way to honor the memory of a loved one. Library staff will select a book for the section of your choice. A bookplate is placed in the front of each memorial book showing the name of the deceased and the donor. For donations of $25 or more we will send a letter to family members notifying them of your gift.

Honor Book

Honor books may be purchased with contributions. An honor book is a wonderful way to honor loved ones on a special occasion — such as a birthday or holiday, wedding or anniversary, graduation or promotion — to recognize a special achievement, or to show thanks to a business or a friend. Library staff will select a book for the section of your choice. A bookplate is placed in the front of each honor book showing the name of the honoree and the donor. For donations of $25 or more we will send a letter to the honoree notifying them of your gift.

 

Memorial and Honor books are subject to the same Weeding Policy as all other books in the Collection.

All gifts of money received by the Library will be processed within five business days of receiving the money.
