Donate UPC labels

The Labels for Education program is a Library fund raising program designed with busy families in mind as an alternative to traditional fund raising. By saving and redeeming product UPCs and beverage caps from participating products the Library can earn FREE educational merchandise, such as library books and dvds. The Hemet community can assist by saving UPCs and beverage caps from participating products and giving them to the Hemet Public Library. The Library redeems the points collected for FREE merchandise! 

Participating products include:

Campbells        Pepperidge Farms        BIC      Prego   V8       People Magazine

Material Donations
The library gladly accepts donations of material for possible inclusion into our library collection. The library applies the same criteria for evaluating gift items as it applies to purchased material. Please preview our materials selection policy for other important information regarding material donations.

Giving Donations
Small quantity gently used donations of three boxes or less may be left without an appointment on the donation carts located in the lobby of the library during business hours.

Evaluation of Donations
Donated materials that do not meet the needs of the library, duplicate materials already owned by the library, or donated items added to the collection but no longer needed and withdrawn will be sold at the Friends of the Library book sales. Proceeds from the sales are used to buy new books or equipment for the library. You are always free to give materials directly to the friends. Library staff review materials donated to the friends for possible inclusion in the library's collection as well.

Monetary Donations
Monetary contributions are added to the library's gift trust fund which is allocated by the library board and City Council for purchase of materials, equipment, or programs too expensive or specialized for the library's regular budget. Checks should be made out to the Hemet Public Library Gift Trust Fund and mailed to:
