Book Donation Guidelines

We welcome donations of books and other materials that expand and enhance our collection or are suitable for resale.

 **Limit donations to 2 bags or boxes of books.

We CANNOT accept:

· Books in poor condition (stained, yellowed, moldy, torn)

· Audio cassettes and VHS tapes

· Books more than 5 years old in the following categories:

      Encyclopedias, Medical/Health, Textbooks, Business

      Travel and Computer, Educational/ Reference


We CAN accept (in good condition only):

· Hardcover and paperback books (fiction and non-fiction)

· Children’s books

· DVD movies

· Audio books on CD

· Music CDs

Donations are added to the Library’s collection if they meet the same standards as those required of purchased materials. Most donations are not added to the collection, but are sold by the Foundation & Friends to fund special Library projects and services.  

The Library will, upon request of the donor, provide a receipt for donated items, but cannot assign a value to donated materials. Once accepted, donations are property of the Library and cannot be returned to the donor.
