How can I donate books for book sales?

The Friends of the Library groups affiliated with each of FVRL's libraries accept donations of the following items, in good condition:

  • Used hardcover books
  • Used paperback books
  • Audiobooks
  • DVDs
  • Commercially-recorded VHS tapes (*check first--some groups accept these and others can't)

They are unable to accept:

  • Magazines currently in print
  • Encyclopedias
  • Damaged books 
  • Out of date textbooks, medical, or technology books
  • Reader's Digest condensed books

Items that are accepted are sold by Friends groups and the Library Foundation to raise money to support library district services and programs.

Donations can be dropped off at any of our libraries. When donating a large number of items (i.e., several boxes), please contact the FVRL Foundation OR the library branch in advance. Branch staff will need to ensure someone (possibly a Friends member) can be available at the library to either assist or relocate the donation.  FVRLF staff may be able to arrange for the donation to be received at the District Operations Center instead and to help unload the materials. 

Donors can typically get a tax receipt form when they drop off a donation.
