Donating Items for Our Book Sales
Donations for used book sales may be dropped off at the library’s circulation desk at any time. We are looking for quality adult and children’s books in good condition, textbooks, audio books, videos, DVDs, recent computer games and software, and music (CDs and albums). We cannot accept encyclopedia sets, old computer software and manuals, weekly magazines, or damaged, musty, or outdated materials. Please box or bag your donations.
