The Friends want your used books and media!

All types are welcome – fiction, non-fiction, children’s, young adult, hardcover, and paperback. We also accept DVDs! Donated books and DVDs are sold to raise money for ongoing Library and Friends’ events. Please follow the guidelines when donating books.

 There is always a marked bin available in the mezzanine just inside the side entrance for small donations.

Guidelines:

  • Books should be in good readable condition.

  • We accept donations during Book Drop Off Days.

  • We also accept DVDs

  • Please do not donate books with broken spines, missing pages or covers, water damage, or mildew.  Please discard any books that have a mildew odor. It is difficult to get rid of mildew, as it spreads easily among books.

  • We cannot accept magazines, text books, encyclopedias, CDs, VHS video tapes, cassette tapes, or software.

  • Please do not put book donations into the library book return bins.

Book Drop-Off Days:
