donation-- wants to add to collection

Hello, I donated a book several days ago, but I neglected to mention that I would have liked it to be added to your permanent library collection. The book is "The PETA Celebrity Cookbook." It's brand-new and has a lot of glossy photos. I think it would be popular. I'm not sure if it's too late to request this. I didn't learn until later that libraries sometimes sell donated books. Thanks!

Hi Roxane-- We are going to evaluate the book. It is possible that we will not in fact add it to our collection, in which case we would sell it through our Friends of the Library-- either way, the library benefits. We generally do not accept donations with the condition that we add the material to our collection. If you in fact wish us only to have it under those circumstances, I will see what I can do to locate it so that it can be returned to you. Since it's new and presumably in good shape, the likelihood is that we will add it, but I'm afraid I can't guarantee that. Please let me know what you want us to do. Regards, Sallie Sallie Pine Manager, Fremont Libraries Alameda County Library System 2400 Stevenson Blvd. Fremont, CA 94538 v 510-745-1413 f 510-797-6557
