Book Donations

The library accepts gifts of gently used books and other material. If you are cleaning out your home or office, consider donating your used items to the library.
We welcome donations of new and used books, magazines, and movies (VHS and DVD). Items should be in good shape, clean and current.  If you have many items to donate please call ahead to see if we are able to accept them at that time.   We also request that large donations come in boxes that we are happy to provide ahead of time.

Please understand that not all donations can be added to our collection.  It is up to the director to decide what is appropriate for our library.  All items not used will be sold or disposed of at our discretion. By law, the library is not allowed to appraise the value of donated materials, though it can provide an acknowledgement of receipt of the items if requested by the donor.
