Donation Policy

Books
We welcome your donations, but we ask that you don’t bring us VHS tapes and encyclopedias. We cannot make use of them or sell them. Please don’t bring us books that are smelly, moldy, in disrepair, stained (we have seen lots of strange stains), missing pages, or more than ten years old. Look at your books and think….”is this something I would check out at a library or buy as a used book?” If the answer to that is no, then we probably are not the place for your donation.

Once you donate something, it becomes library property. If we cannot use your donations for the collection, we will gladly pass them on to the Friends of the Library for the book sale.

Magazines
We do accept magazine donations! 95% of the magazines in our reading room are donated by patrons! Don’t keep those magazines laying around. Once you read it, remove or mark out your personal information and bring it on down for others to enjoy. We also gladly accept subscriptions purchased on our behalf. If you are interested in purchasing a subscription for anything for us, please have them sent to our post office box.
