How to Donate Books

Book Donations Are Accepted at the Main Library Loading Area Only

Friends’ Book Sale volunteers are back in business sorting books for future book sales. Books donated to the Friends are tax deductible and Friends will provide a receipt upon request, but are prohibited by the IRS to assign a value for your donation.

Friends welcomes coffee table books, antique or collectible books, art, history, gardening, craft and hobby, fiction, classics, cookbooks and children’s books, as well as DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.

Pease do NOT donate textbooks, computer or technology books, reference books, or travel books that are older than two years. Books that are in poor condition, musty or missing pages are also not accepted. As a general rule, if you wouldn’t buy it, please don’t donate it. The Friends does NOT accept magazines or vinyl records.

Bring all donations to the loading area at the back of the Main Library. Larger donations should be packed securely in paper bags or boxes. People who wish to donate more than five boxes of books should email Friends and a member will respond and arrange a time to accept the donation at the Main Library loading area.
