The library receives thousands of donations of print and non-print materials each year. Donated items that fill a need in the collection are added. However, most go directly to the book sale. We have learned from long experience what sells and what doesn’t. We have to be selective because of storage limitations and the labor involved.
Publication dates and condition are important.
The library accepts books published in the last 5 years in good to excellent condition. That means the hardback books should have covers that are intact, not ripped, and the books not be musty or dirty. Paperbacks must not be yellowed or have cracked spine. Paperbacks must have covers. DVDs in good condition or better, regardless of age, will be accepted as long as they are in their original packaging.
We ask that you bring your donations M-F between 10 am and 4pm. If the Director is available, they will be reviewed on the spot, accepting what we can use.
We do not accept magazines, text books, VHS, encyclopedias, cassette tapes, CDs. We cannot accept gifts of artwork, equipment, furniture, etc. except with the approval of the Director.
Thank-you for your generosity to the Liberty Hill Public Library!
