Most donated items are sold at library book sales or donated to other nonprofit agencies—the money raised through sales and cash donations funds programs and purchasing books and other materials.
All donated items are considered property of the library, to do with as staff and volunteers feel is best. Library staff and volunteers reserve the right to throw away any items they deem unsaleable, moldy, or containing pests.
All money from our used book sales goes to support the library and its programs.
Books donated for this purpose should be new or an antique or heirloom edition of historical value.
