Donate Books and Other Items
The Friends welcomes donations of books, movies, music, audiobooks, and games. Donations of these items make up the majority of items sold at Friends book sales and provide the primary source of revenue for the Friends. By donating, you are helping to support Library programs and initiatives and putting books, and other media, back into the community where these items can be enjoyed by others.
Before making a donation, please review the list of items we accept by clicking the button below. If you are not sure if the items you wish to donate are accepted by the Friends, click "Contact Us" at the top of this page and send us a message.
Donations of multiple boxes or bags should be placed in the black bins (not on the floor) outside the Friends Room door. The Friends Room is located next to the elevator, on the Library lower level, just off of the parking garage. Only small donations (one bagful) should be brought into the Library and taken to the Registration or Circulation Desks. Please call the library in advance if you are donating a large number of boxes or bags so the Library can help accommodate the drop-off of these items.
Because the Friends is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your donations are tax-deductible. We can provide a receipt for your donation, but are unable to assist in determining the value of donated items.
