Book Donations

The Friends are accepting donations by appointment. Use this form to sign up for a time slot!

The Friends of the Library accept used books, CDs and DVDs for their book sales. The money earned from the sales is then given to the library to fund necessary items and events. We cannot accept donations of VHS tapes, encyclopedias, magazines, text books, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, or any materials that are soiled, musty or had been wet. Donations will be accepted at the service entrance along the back driveway by the book and materials drop boxes. Press the buzzer at your scheduled time and a staff member will open the service entrance. Please remember that we do not unload the books, but will provide a cart or dolly if necessary to assist you. Your donations are a great way to recycle and improve the enjoyment of others!
