Monetary gifts are wel­come and used to en­hance pro­grams and ser­vices. Gifts of books are grate­fully ac­cepted with the un­der­stand­ing that li­brary staff de­ter­mines which ma­te­ri­als are ap­pro­pri­ate to add to the col­lec­tion.

  • Magazines or news­pa­pers

How to Donate

Due to space lim­i­ta­tions and the cost of han­dling do­na­tions, the Millington Arbela District Library and ap­point­ments are now re­quired prior to bring­ing large do­na­tions to the li­brary.

At this time, we can­not un­load do­na­tions from ve­hi­cles in the park­ing lot, but we’re happy to give you ac­cess to our de­liv­ery door to help speed up the process (and save your back)!

Please bring your items in boxes or bags that do not need to be re­turned. If you need a re­ceipt, please reach out to the li­brary prior to your do­na­tion to make arrange­ments.
