Donation Policy

Donated books may or may not be included in the library collection based on the decision of the Library Manager.  Factors to be considered in making this decision are:

  • Age and currency of material
  • Condition of material
  • Subject matter and need for such matter in our collection    

Donations of books not included in the collection will be sold in the semi-annual book sale.   Unsold donations will be disposed of.  Tax receipts for cash donations of $10.00 or more will be issued by the Town of Rimbey.  Tax receipt for donations in kind will only be issued for gifts with a value of $100.00 or more for a single item.  Individuals donating goods should provide a purchase receipt as proof of value.  For those gifts where a purchase receipt is not possible, the value shall be determined by the Town Manager or the Municipal Treasurer.
