Donations of gently used items in good condition and odor- and mold-free are accepted by many of Delaware's public libraries during their business hours.  Some libraries have more shelf space and need for donations (such as for upcoming book sales) than others, so it's best to contact the library directly.  You can do that through the Ask a Librarian Delaware service and indicate which Delaware public library you'd like to connect with, on the telephone during regular business hours, or in person.

When accepting used materials, libraries reserve the right to evaluate, sell, or dispose of them using the same criteria applied to our purchased material.

Thank you for supporting your library!
