Chillicothe Public Library District stands as an organization to bring together the various communities it serves by enabling people to improve their lives and realize their full potential. The people will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to locate, evaluate, and effectively use information in a changing technological world. The people will also have material and resources available to fulfill their desire for recreational reading, viewing, and listening experiences. In order to accomplish these goals, Chillicothe Public Library District will be involved in a continuous process of growth and development.
Donations to the Library
The Chillicothe Public Library accepts book donations during regular business hours. We would appreciate a phone call ahead of time if you plan on bringing in any donations. We do not accept encyclopedias, text books, National Geographic, or any books that are musty, moldy or torn. We also do not accept books that are self published or do not have an ISBN.
Tax receipts are available upon request. Books or materials not used in library proper are sold at the book sale or sold on the 'sale' shelf in the library.
Monetary donations are always welcomed and much appreciated. These include endowments, memorials, book dedications and trusts.
The Caterpillar Foundation contributes to communities - especially our community. If you are a Caterpillar employee or retiree, any monetary donation that you make to the Chillicothe Public Library will be matched by the Caterpillar Foundation. So, $10 becomes $20 - $50 becomes $100 and up and up and up. Consider making a matching donation to the Chillicothe Public Library. Your money stays in our community, which in turn, benefits our community. For more information, ask your employer or the library's director.
If you would like brass leaf in the front lobby dedicated to you or someone you know or a dedicated rock placed on our walkways, contact the Library for further information.
