Donations


Please note: Friends of the Library is not able to accept donations at this time. We will continue to evaluate our capacity to safely resume donations.

Donate your gently used books, audiobooks, and DVDs to Friends of the Library. Your donations are sold at Big Book Sales, the Library Store, and at every library location. Proceeds from these sales help support library programs and fund future levy campaigns which ensure the library will remain open to all.
