Donations to the Library
Thank you so much for considering donating to your local library. The items that are donated can be used to replace worn/damaged items. If we don’t use them in the collection, they will be used by our Friends of the Library Association (FOLA.) FOLA takes care of our book sale and replaces items that are sold with your generous donations.
Items we are NOT accepting now include:
National Geographic magazines
Magazines older than 2017
Outdated medical books older than 2017
Anything that is moldy or dirty or buggy. A good guideline for determining if an item is appropriate for donation is if you wouldn’t put it on your own shelf, we won’t put it on ours. We have the right to refuse any donation.
