NOTE: The Friends will not be able to take donations at the East Friends Bookstore until after the remodel. We will take them again when we reopen in September.
Bookstores are mainly stocked with used book donations and staffed by volunteers. Friends Members receive a 20% discount on most books.
Donations should be in boxes weighing 30 pounds or less and can be delivered to any Library location.
Please read our Book Donation Policy for more information.
