GIFTS TO THE LIBRARY
Perhaps you are one of the many library visitors who have considered donating in support of the library. The Library's operating funds provide for purchasing books, movies and other library materials. But art and gardens, special collections and world renown speakers are outside of what the budget can provide. You can make a difference with your donation.
All gifts to the Bloomfield Township Public Library are acknowledged promptly. Gifts of $1,000 or more will be acknowledged with engraving of the donor's name in the Library's Book of Recognition, displayed in the Library lobby.
Substantial gifts of $5,000 or more will receive a small scale reproduction of Quest in bronze, the Library's lobby sculpture.
Major gifts of $10,000 or more may be acknowledged with a modest plaque or similar recognition at the discretion of the Library's Board of Trustees.
Your gift to the Library may allow you to be eligible for a federal income tax deduction and a Michigan tax credit. Please consult with your tax advisro for your specific benefit.
Make a lasting gift to literacy and reading. Gift planning is a way to express your belief in the value of reading, learning and your public library AND earn a tax credit. Gift planning can take many forms - monetary donations, stick, real estate and other property, bequests, retirement plans or business interests. Please click on our gift planning brochure below for additional information. To discuss a planned gift and to learn more about the tax credit, please contact the Library Director, Karen Kotulis-Carter, at (248) 642-5800.
The Library greatly appreciates your donations of gently used books and media of all types to the Friends of the Library. Clean out your closets and basements, your bookshelves and cabinets and bring your donations to the Library! Magazines, records, condensed books, encyclopedias, self taped videos and audios and sets such as the Time-Life or American Heritage are not accepted. Donations to the Friends generate funding for the Friends who financially support many Library projects, collections and programs.
Donations are tax deductable - check with your tax advisor as to the value of your donation.
Our book donation room is open every hour the Library is. It is located at the west side of the Library, just a short walk down the sidewalk to the staff and delivery entrances. For your convenience, five minute parking is permitted in the delivery zone before the black gates. Carts are available in the donation room to help you transport books from your car to the donation room. To receive an acknowledgement of your donation, please complete a donor receipt card, self-address it and leave it in the box provided in this room
Your donations are greatly appreciated!
