Donations Welcome April – November

The Friends of the Library Used Book Store gratefully accepts donations from April through November.  Due to space limitations, the Friends have made the following changes to their policy for accepting used books.  Please follow this policy when considering donations for the store.

The Friends of the Library request that donations include only:

  • Gently used books
  • DVDs
  • CDs
  • We ask that that all items be in saleable condition; before donating an item ask yourself, “Would I buy this item?”

The Book Store cannot store, display or sell old textbooks, dictionaries or torn, soiled or musty books, all of which need to go to the dump. Pre-2005 travel guides, atlases, and textbooks are also too space consuming and no one has purchased an encyclopedia in years.  With a heavy heart these must also be consigned to the dump.

If a donor in the region is unable to bring books to the Library, call 633-3112 and ask to be transferred to the bookstore — arrangements will be made to pick up gift books.  Donations may be made when the store is open and after hours in the large plastic bin behind the store (near the Library parking lot).
