Please hold onto your material donations while we establish safe processes to collect them. We appreciate your patience and will update this space when we are ready to accept donated materials again. 

Yes, we do accept donated materials.  We will add items we think will enhance our collection.  We sell items we don't immediately need in one of our bi-annual sales or in our ongoing Friends Book Store on the Main Floor of the library.  (See our Collection Development Policy.)
