Donations may be dropped off at the library’s Patron Services Desk or Youth Services Desk at any time. We are looking for items in good condition including books, audiobooks, and DVDs. We cannot accept CDs, VHS tapes, encyclopedia sets, old computer software and manuals, weekly magazines, or damaged, musty, or outdated materials. Please box or bag your donations.
We cannot guarantee donated items will go into the library’s collection or the ongoing book sale. We may add your items to our ongoing book sale (located on the main level) or we may donate the items to Discover Books.
Income Tax Statements
The library cannot assess the value of a donation. There is a donation form that can be completed for your records. It is the donor’s responsibility to determine the value of the donation or use an independent appraiser to do it for them. Receipts can be obtained at the Patron Services Desk.
Use of Donations
All donations are accepted with the understanding that they may someday be sold or disposed of in the best interest of the library. The library cannot commit itself to perpetually housing a donation. No donation will be disposed of in a careless manner and every donor can be assured that the library will respect their donation and house it as long as feasible.
