Donating Your Gently Used Books

As of July, 2024

Thank you for your interest in donating your gently used books and DVDs to the Friends! The Friends are currently taking book donations. 

Based on annual storage limitations, past book sale earnings, and feedback from long serving volunteers, the following book sale donation guidelines have been put into place for 2024.

The Friends of the Library will accept a maximum of THREE banker size boxes per resident of the following:

  • Any book with a 2023 or 2024 copyright date (on any topic, youth or adult, fiction or non-fiction, hardcover or paperback).
  • YOUTH or YA books of any age (on any topic, fiction or non-fiction, hardcover or paperback).
  • Adult FICTION PAPERBACK books of any age.
  • DVDs and Audiobooks on CD of any age.

The Friends DO NOT accept pre-2022 adult non-fiction books, pre-2022 adult hardcover fiction, any encyclopedias, text books, magazines, records, VHS tapes, toys, clothes, or puzzles. 

Please Remember…

The donation of materials must be made in the Library during regular business hours. For the safety of City staff and Library volunteers, any donation left in the Library return box or abandoned outside of the building are sent directly to the dumpster.
The Friends are unable to retrieve specific items once they are donated.
PLEASE make certain there are no keepsakes in your donated materials.
