Please read the following guidelines for donations:

Helpful items:

  • Fiction books, including romance, mysteries, science fiction, and general fiction

What we don’t want:

  • Smelly, moldy, marked up, and torn books
  • Reference books, encyclopedias, text books
  • Travel, sports, and similar type books that become obsolete after a short period of time, and
  • Sheet music, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, magazines

Donations must be brought to the library help desk, where they will be screened by members of the library staff. We cannot accept books that are moldy or mildewed, marked up, or shopworn. Individuals or families may bring up to two boxes of books to be screened at a time.

Books that cannot be accepted must be removed by the owner. To assist patrons with the disposal of books not suitable for the Friends’ book sales, information regarding alternative venues for disposal will be available at the help desk. Thank you for your understanding!
