How to Donate

Friends of the Library hold a donation drop-off the first Saturday of every month from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Bring items you want to donate to the Library’s parking lot near the curbside pickup spots. You’ll see a volunteer there who will help you unload your donations.

If you aren’t able to make it to a Saturday drop-off, you can still donate items. Bags small enough for one person to carry in one trip may be brought to curbside pickup or the Library’s Circulation Desk. Any donation drop-offs larger than that must be pre-arranged with Friends of the Library. Fill out the form below to schedule a drop-off time.
