The Friends want your used books and media!
All types are welcome - fiction, non-fiction, children’s, young adult, hardcover, and paperback. Donated books are sold to raise money for ongoing Library and Friends' events.

Please follow these guidelines when donating books:

  • Books should be in good readable condition. 
  • We also accept DVDs, books-on-CD, and audio CDs.
  • Please do not donate books with broken spines, missing pages or covers, water damage, or mildew.  Please discard any books that have a mildew odor. Mildew can spread easily among books, and is difficult to get rid of.
  • We cannot accept magazines, text books, encyclopedias, VHS video tapes, cassette tapes, or software.
  • We accept donations during Book Drop Off Days. 
  • Please do not put book donations into the library book return bins.

Book Drop-Off Days
First Saturday of every month
10 am – 12 pm
