The library has limited storage space and therefore limits its donation intake to two small bags or boxes per person at a time. We typically accept fiction, children's books, cooking and craft books, audiobooks, puzzles, and DVDs. The library never accepts textbooks, dictionaries, or encyclopedias. We only accept donations during our open business hours. Please do not put them in the book return or leave them outside.
