Donate Your Nearly New Books, Movies & CDs
The library accepts donations of like-new books, CDs, and DVDs that are clean and in good condition. Items we feel would benefit our patrons go into our collection; others go to the FriendShop. Tax receipts are available.
Please don’t donate items that are torn, worn, moldy, damaged, or dirty. We cannot accept magazines and Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, nor encyclopedias or textbooks more than 5 years old.
Place donations of a few items in our book returns. For larger quantities, please leave them in a box or bag outside the back of the library, at the white garage door. (Use the driveway just east of the book return.)
For other places to take items, see Recycling, Donating, and Getting Rid of Stuff.
