How, When And Where To Donate:

The Book-Go-Round accepts donations of up to 2 boxes or 2 bags of books a day, between the hours of 12-5 Sunday thru Friday, 10-5 on Saturday. And until 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays.
 

We appreciate your desire to donate to us.  We have a few requests. 

  1. We request you bring only 2 banker box size boxes or 2 grocery bags per week and only to one of our locations either to us at the store or to the library.  We have a very generous community and this will help our volunteers keep up with all of the donations.

  2. NO encyclopedias, dictionaries, or thesauruses over 5 years old.   

  3. We cannot use books that are torn or mildewed.

To avoid damaging books, please stack FLAT - place books horizontally rather than vertically. Stack NO HIGHER than the top of the box

Please note, we cannot accept the following:

  • No encyclopedias older than 10 years

  • No games

  • No law tomes

  • No magazines

  • No mildewed items (if you wouldn't give it to a friend, don't give it to the Friends)

  • No oversized boxes (lifting books in boxes larger than a 'xerox' box is hard on the back!)

  • No Readers Digest condensed books

  • No text books with excessive ink underlining or highlighting.

Your donations are tax deductible!

You receive a tax receipt, the gratitude of the Friends and Library, plus the satisfaction of contributing to the library service in our community.

Thank you for your support!
