Gift Donation Policy

Sterling strives to develop leaders

Types of materials donated can include but are not limited to: books, CDs, DVDs and artifacts.

Those wishing to donate to Sterling College Mabee Library are asked to submit a bibliographic listing of materials to the Library Director for evaluation. The items, which are selected for acceptance, become the property of the library and will not be returned to the donor.

The Library Director reserves the right to select, catalog, display, circulate and care for these materials . Should the need arise to withdraw the materials from the collection due to condition, the Library Director will dispose of them as seen fit.

If a gift receipt is desired, the donor must attach a listing of materials from which a receipt can be made. For income tax purposes, the donor may determine book values by using book prices available through internet sources, e.g., The library does not have staff nor time to determine the value of each item.
