Donations

We are happy to accept donations from our patrons, however, due to space and staff constraints we cannot accept everything you might like to give us. Our guidelines for donations are that we accept new or gently used items. If we are unable to use your donation it will be used to stock our ongoing book sale.  We are happy to accept your donations with the following exceptions:

  • Textbooks or computer books older than 2 years
  • Magazines
  • Encyclopedias
  • VHS tapes
  • Any materials that are dirty, mildewed, damaged or have been stored in a basement

Donations can be left with the Circulation staff during regular library hours. If you have any questions, you can call 353-5600 ext. 116 and ask for Gina.  Please do not leave donations outside the building or in our book depository slot.  Due to storage considerations we ask that you limit your donation to one bag or small box per week.
