Thank you for considering Wood Library for your book donations. Once donated, items become the property of the library and will be used as it deems fit. We gladly accept books and audio/visual items listed below in good condition.
We will start accepting book donations on August 6.
To protect the health and safety of our staff and volunteers and to minimize undue burden, please donate your items according to the following specifications:
Donations should be clean, dry and free of bugs or mold and in a sellable condition. If it’s an item you would buy, it’s an item we can sell.
