Meem’s Library Policies
Meem Library accepts all gifts-in-kind that it deems appropriate to the collection, with the provision that the librarian has the right to handle or dispose of such gifts in the best interests of the college. The library does not accept materials in poor condition, nor periodicals, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, or vinyl records.
In accordance with federal guidelines, the library does not make appraisals of gifts for tax, inheritance, or any other purpose. Donors are recognized by the college in the following ways:
- A special bookplate bearing the donor’s name is inserted in gift materials that are eventually kept by the library, if the donor so wishes.
- The Development Office provides the donor with a letter of acknowledgement.
Reserve materials may be borrowed for a two-hour period, and are restricted to library use only. Because of the seriousness of depriving others of the use of these materials, fines of $5 per day are charged for overdue reserve items. For additional information contact Laura Cooley, circulation and public services librarian, at 505-984-6044 or .
