Donation of goods and services

The Board of Trustees of the Mercer Public Library recognizes the value of donated goods and services to the library. Local individuals who would like to donate labor or materials for any library project are encouraged to contact the Library Director or a member of the Library Board.

The Board of Trustees reserves the right to accept or reject any donations based on the needs of the library. Donations of building materials or labor for any library building project must meet the design specifications determined by the project architect and coordinate with the project’s construction timeline.

In the case that multiple businesses or individuals offer donations for the same goods or services, the Library Board will select what donations to accept based on the same criteria that would be used in selecting a contractor for any paid project. These criteria include, but are not limited to: experience, quality of work, quality of materials, and references.
