Occasionally, the library will host programs and events that include prizes to encourage our patrons to participate. The library may choose to purchase gifts or gift cards for these purposes.
When a gift card is purchased, it will be locked in a file in the fiscal officer’s office until it is given to the patron. Those who are awarded gift cards as a prize will be recorded and the list will be kept with the gift card receipt as a record.
When a prize with a value that exceeds $50 is given, the winner’s name will be recorded and kept with the receipt as a record as well.
Any gifts of this type (gifts or gift cards) that are donated to the library will not be required to have a record of who was awarded the gift.
Library employees and immediate family members of library employees are not eligible to win prizes awarded by and paid for with library funds.
