Please Donate good condition DVDs and Books to the Library

E-mail Print
altDonate Used DVDs & Books.
We may add them to our collection for others to borrow or place them in our ongoing book sale. Either way, your donation helps the library and your neighbors.

DVDs The Library DVD collection gets heavy use and it's hard to keep up with the demand for new and varied titles. If you have DVDs in good condition collecting dust on your shelves, please consider giving them an new active life at the library. Even if it's a title you know the library already owns, we are always happy to replace our worn copy with a donated copy in better shape.

Books Donations of recently published fiction and non fiction books (2014-2017) are also appreciated to round out the library's collection. Donated books need to be in good condition to make it on to the shelves. If we decide not to add a donated book to the collection, we can still place it in the Book Sale Carts in the lobby. Proceeds from those book sales help purchase new books and DVDs for the library collection.

We ask that you bring your DVD and book donations to the library during open hours, so that we can quickly sort through and pick out the items that make sense for the library shelves or our book sale. All others can go to the used book box at the WRATS. Please don't leave boxes of donations on the porch.

If you have any questions, please e-mail or call 978-544-3559. THANKS!!
