Philo-Hill Magnet Academy Media Center welcomes book donations. Please follow the guidelines below:
- Please donate books that are age-appropriate. We have middle school students, grades 6-8, at Philo-Hill.
- Please donate books that are only ‘slightly used’. If books have been stored and have dust or mold, we can’t accept them. If the book is in such bad shape that you wouldn’t keep it in your personal library, please just throw it away.
- We do NOT give receipts for income tax purposes. Regrettably, we are not equipped to do this.
- We reserve the right to use the books in the way that is best for our school. This means that your donation may be placed in our collection, or may be used as an incentive/prize for students, or may be passed along to another school or organization.
- We DO accept monetary donations which we will use to purchase needed books for our collection. In case of a monetary donation, gift plates will be place in the front cover of the book(s) with the donor’s name and school year on it.
If you are interested in purchasing new books for our collection, please check with Miss Freeland, email@example.com or (336)703-4165 for suggestions before making a purchase.
