Sometimes the donated item doesn’t meet the Library’s collection development criteria. Perhaps we already have enough copies of the donated title, or enough information of the subject, or it may not meet the information needs of our community. If the Library can’t use the item, it gets passed along to the Teton County Library Friends.
The Friends sort the items and put them into the Friends Book Nook in the library lobby. Friends’ mission is to get as many books as possible into as many hands as possible for as little money as possible.
Donated items not added to the collection or to the Book Nook are passed on to the community.
For more information please email the library or call at 307-733-2164.
