Book Donations

The Library welcomes donations of new and lightly used books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and other items (games, puzzles, flashcards). Donations that meet the needs of the Library will be cataloged and added to our collection. Other items are placed in our sale room, and proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library.


Tax receipts are available upon request.

Memorials and Honor Donations

The Library is honored to accept a memorial or honor donation. This is a wonderful way to remember or acknowledge someone special. Our staff will make every attempt to fulfill specific requests for material that is appropriate to that individual. When the donation is received, an acknowledgement is sent to the donor and the family (or other designee). When the book is put into circulation, usually about 4-6 weeks, a bookplate is placed inside the book’s cover.
