Donate Your Books
Donate Your Books To The Lighthouse Point Library!
Thanks to the community’s generous daily donations of new and gently used materials, the library is able to add wonderful new and like new materials to the collection at no cost to the City. Items which are donated and are not added to the collection help local community agencies or help raise money for the library at our semi-annual book sales. Please think of us after your next bookshelf clear out. Your thoughtfulness might just be tax deductible!*
We accept materials in new and gentle used condition including:
Books for all ages in all languages (hard covers and paperbacks)
Audiobooks on CD
Due to space limitations, we are not able to accept:
Encyclopedias over five years old
Items in disrepair
Items with a musty and/or tobacco scent
*Each month a letter of appreciation is sent to individuals who sign the library’s donation log during the prior month. This letter of contribution may be useful for tax deduction purposes.
Past and present charity partners include, America's Moms for Soldiers, The Boys and Girls Club, The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, The Daughters of the American Revolution, Disabled Vietnam Veterans, Goodwill Industries, Hospice By The Sea, Kids in Distress, The Salvation Army, Women in Distress, Shoeboxes for Soldiers, local nursing homes and local schools.
