How to Donate
Due to space limitations and the cost of handling donations, please consider calling the library prior to bringing in large donations.
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 upon submitting your donation.
If your potential donation doesn’t fit our guidelines, please don’t worry! There are a variety of other options for you:
