Book Donations at the Library

Book donations are accepted the first week of each month. Books accepted will be reviewed by staff and may be placed in our collection, donated to our on-going book sale, or donated to third-party organizations.

Items we do not accept include:

  • Textbooks

  • Reader’s Digest condensed books (or other condensed books and abridgments)

  • Encyclopedia sets (or any other type of reference book)

  • Collections of periodicals (example: a National Geographic collection, 1950-Present)

  • Records or albums or VHS tapes

  • Damaged items (water damage, torn pages, broken bindings, discolorations, mold, musty odor, etc.)

There are times when we cannot accept items due to limited space.  Please check other alternatives. Many nursing homes, thrift stores, and area correctional facilities also accept book donations.
