Food and Drink Policy

The library has a Keurig brewing machine where you can purchase and enjoy coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.  

Drinks in covered containers are allowed throughout the library except in the computer labs. Light snacks are permitted in the library. 

Please let library staff know right away if you have a spill - we want to keep the area clean for everyone!

Policy for Gifts or Donations

The Pilgrim Library welcomes most materials on the condition that the donor does not dictate their use or disposal. If desired, a letter acknowledging the gifts will be provided. The Pilgrim Library will not assign dollar amounts for tax purposes; that is the responsibility of the donor.

The Defiance College Archives also collects material related to the history of Defiance College, plus the now-closed Schauffler and Palmer Colleges, and the Christian Biblical Institute.  If you are looking to donate materials for the Archives, please click on the PDF document above to read our Archives Donation Policy and the Deed of Gift Form.  You may print and sign the Deed of Gift to accompany your donation.

If you have any questions regarding donations to either the Pilgrim Library or the Defiance College Archives, please contact the Library Director or the Metadata & Archives Librarian.
