The Library does not rent or sell its donor mailing lists, but sometimes we exchange names and postal addresses with other nonprofit organizations whose information we believe may be of interest to our members. Exchanging our list with other reputable charitable organizations is the most cost effective way to find new supporters. We hope you agree. The option is yours.
