Donated books and media play an important role in our collection development and fundraising programs. Materials donations are tax-deductible as charitable donations. Upon request, staff will provide you with a dated receipt for income tax purposes.


Guidelines for Bringing in Your Book Donations:

  • Please bring donations to the Circulation Desk in boxes or bags that you can leave with the Library.
  • Staff cannot assist you with unloading donations.
  • Call the library in advance if you wish to bring in a large number of donations.
  • Do not leave donated materials in the book drop or outside the library.
  • Donations cannot be returned to you once they have been given to the library.
  • Items that are accepted for donation but, after examination, are not added to the Library’s collection will be sold, donated to other organizations or recycled.
