Policy Regarding Gifts to and Alliances with the Library System
Gifts to the Library
Virginia Code 42.1-35 states in part: ... the Board shall have the right to accept donations and bequests of money, personal property, or real estate for the establishment and maintenance of such free public Library systems or endowments for same.
The Board of County Supervisors, at its meeting December 21, 1955, ... agreed that should anyone desire to donate land for Library purposes and specifies that it should be titled in the name of the Library Board and not the County, that the Library Board should first come back to the Board of County Supervisors and get its permission on whether the land so offered as a gift should be accepted and that the same procedure should also be followed whether the land is donated or to be purchased.
Gifts to the Fairfax County Public Library may be tax-deductible.
