Anyone can donate books and magazines they no longer want by bringing them to the check-out desk of either library or by placing them in the donation bin near the Dove Library’s service entrance on the south side of the building.

Some donated items go into the library’s collection, while the rest are sold by the Friends in the bookstores. This source of funding is increasingly more important now as cuts to library budgets become deeper. The Friends and the library appreciate your support.
