Planned Giving

Planned gifts can provide meaningful charitable support to the Library and may offer donors valuable tax benefits, potential lifetime income, and the ability to transfer assets at a reduced tax cost. Our planned giving program promotes a variety of methods by which individuals may contribute to the Friends of Chesterfield County Public Library. We want to encourage individuals to make gifts that support the Library beyond their lifetimes. For more information on how to arrange for a planned gift, please contact us.

In Kind Gifts / Donations of Materials

The Friends of the Chesterfield County Public Library helps to support the library through the sale of donated material not needed for the Library’s collection. These materials are sold in the branches, at special book sales and online. We encourage the donation of useful materials in good condition.

Donations we can accept:

  • Hardcover and paperback books, adult, teen, juvenile; fiction and nonfiction; and large print
  • Professionally produced media items such as CDs, audio-books, game systems and games for Wii, Wii U; PlayStation, 3, 4 or Vita; and Xbox 360 or Xbox One
  • Current magazines, complete sets of encyclopedias and unused workbooks

Exclusions include the following items that are more than five years old:

  • Medical and financial advice books
  • Test preparation guides
  • Text books more than 10 years old are not accepted and only current price guides and almanacs are needed

Items may be taken to one of the branches (or you can contact us). Please call ahead to your local branch if you have a large quantity to donate. The value of the contributed items may be tax deductible.
