Donate Your Books and Other Items!
There are three ways to donate:
- Bring your items to a scheduled drop-off day (see the list of events for dates)
Volunteers will be available to help unload and provide receipts. This option is preferred if you have a lot of books. These scheduled dates all take place at the gym entrance at Town Offices
- Use the 24/7 drop-box at the side of the library
This box is located at the end of the side portion of the library’s main parking lot, near the loading area – look for the “Book Sale Drop-Off” banner. This box is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, since this box is not weatherproof, please try to avoid dropping off items during inclement weather
- Request a pick-up
If you are emptying a house or an estate and would like to donate a large collection of books, please contact the Friends directly to make special arrangements
The Friends seek books of all kinds in good condition including recent best sellers, fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, paperbacks – as well as audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, maps, and local interest items.
