Gift Policy

The Georgia Highlands College Library is pleased to accept donations of gently used books and other materials to help build its collections. 

Although donations are always welcome, the Library has limited storage capacity, and is therefore unable to add all donated material to our holdings. Donated material is carefully reviewed, and that material which is considered to best meet the needs of our college is selected.

When accepted, gifts become the property of the Georgia Highlands College Libraries with the understanding that they are to be used for the benefit of the Library and the students of the college. Items that cannot be added to our collections may be sold in our Library Book Sale, with all proceeds going to the GHC Foundation’s student scholarship fund.

If requested in advance, the library will acknowledge a gift donation in writing, including the date and number of books donated. If an itemized inventory is needed for tax purposes, it is the donor’s responsibility to compile that list and assign a value before making the donation. Also when requested in advance, gifts placed in the Library’s collection may be identified with a donor gift plate.
