Although the Library loves to expand its collections of materials via donations from the Community, please consider the following guidelines as you help us expand. 

Donation Policy

  • Please bring the books to the Library during regular 'open' hours
  • Do not leave bags of books outside - donations cannot be accepted without review by staff.
  • We can accept new and recent hardcover books, paperbacks in good condition, children's books, CDs, videos and audio books.
  • Due to limited storage space, we cannot accept old hardcover books, textbooks or Reader's Digest Condensed books.

If any of the donations appear to be moldy, none of the donation(s) can be accepted.  Also, if your books were stored in a dark and damp area for 24 hours or more or have a stale smell, we cannot accept them as mold spores travel through the air and could affect the rest of our collection. 

Unattended Children

A child is considered unattended unless accompanied at all times by a parent, caregiver, or other responsible person aged 15 years or older. 

If a child is found without a parent or care-giver with them, we will immediately try to determine who their parent or care-giver is so that they may be reunited with that individual.  If a parent or care-giver habitually leaves a child  unattended, we may need to request that the parent make proper arrangements for their child while in the Library.Lost child with teddy bear

When the safety of an unattended child is in doubt, staff will contact the parent / care-giver.  If they are not readily available, the staff will contact the Pennington Police Department. 

Additionally, parents or caregivers are asked to remove children from the Library whose behavior is disruptive to other patrons.

Cell Phone Use Policy:

Cell Phone

Use of cell phones is permitted outside of the Library in the hall area.

 

In consideration of others, we ask patrons to please turn off phones or set them to vibrate only when entering the Library. Thank You.
