We love your book donations! And, we put them to good use. Our used Book Sale Room is 100% run by library volunteers. All the proceeds go back into library programs. In fiscal year 2019 we raised $26,667 from your donations. Thank you!
We accept book donations at any time the library is open. We have a wagon you can borrow from the Cards & Accounts desk if you have a few boxes. For large donations, please email VolCoor@lclsonline.org to arrange a drop off time.
Once we receive the donations our volunteers sort through them to check for condition and desirability. Once sorted the library staff can take them to add to the collection. If they are not added to the collection, we sell them in the Book Sale Room. If we are unable to add them to the collection or put them in the Book Sale Room we send them to a company called Thrift Books, they sell them for us online and we split the proceeds 50/50.
