Book Donation Procedures

Thanks for thinking of the library! If you would like to donate new or used books to the Graham & Parks Library, please consider the following:

  • We need books in very good condition (i.e. no ripped pages, writing in book, etc.).
  • Hard cover books are best for the library, due to circulation.
  • Content and level of book should be appropriate for a K-5 school.

The librarian may decide not to use the books in the library. In this case, the books may be donated to classroom teachers, other students in the school, or another charity or depository.

The Ann Bolger Library welcomes support in the form of books and money, donated in memory of Ann Bolger.

Each donated book and book purchased with donated funds will be identified by a book plate, featuring the butterfly shown above and designed by Jean Evans. The book plate will bear the name of a donor, or "anonymous."

Donations are tax deductible. To ensure your donation is properly directed, please make checks payable to "The Friends of Graham and Parks," and be sure to put "Ann Bolger Library Fund" in the memo space. You can leave them with the Family Coordinator's Office, or mail them to:
