Donating Books

We are now able to accept your book donations!

Our partners at Better World Books have shared a bright green Drop Box with us. With it, we can send our community’s book donations and discards out to be sold online. The library and literacy partners around the world receive portions of the proceeds, so your donations really make a difference to us here and those in need.

Only return library items to the Returns Box at the front door. Please do not leave library items in the bright green Drop Box. Library items left in the Better World Books Drop Box near the south stairs will not be able to be checked in and may result in library charges.
