We appreciate the special place that books have in people’s lives and the reluctance to discard them. However, limitations of time and space make it impossible for the library to accept all the books it is offered. Our purpose in accepting books as donations is to either add them to the collection or generate revenue for the library by offering them for sale to other patrons in our Book Cellar. Donated books must be clean, with binding and covers intact, and non-fiction should be up-to-date.
We do not accept:
Old reference sets – Encyclopedias, etc.
Reader’s Digest condensed books
Materials whose subject matter is clearly out of date
Books in poor physical condition
Please phone us prior to dropping off books so that we can go over our policy and discuss the nature and amount of materials you would like to donate. All donated books must be brought to the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of the library. The library will be happy to provide you with a letter acknowledging receipt of the books.
