Your Gift

  • Is tax deductible.*
  • Will be acknowledged if you provide your name and address when you make your gift.
  • Will be reviewed and either added to the library's collections or sent to the Marriott Library Book Sale. There is no guarantee that donated items will be added to the library collection.  All donated material is property of the Marriott Library.
*All gifts are tax deductible, but the library is not permitted to give a statement of value because the IRS considers it an interested party. Donors should keep a record of how many items are given so they can estimate a value. If you think your gift is valued at more than $5,000, it must be appraised by an independent appraiser before arriving at the library.
