Donate Books and Other Materials

PHPL accepts donations of materials for use in the Library’s collection or for the Friends of the Library book sale. All proceeds of the book sale go to the Library.

We are happy to accept: Books, DVDs, and audiobooks. Puzzles with ALL pieces. Items must be clean and in good condition (no markings, torn pages). Items must be completely intact without missing pages or parts.

We do NOT accept: Music CDs, vinyl records, items with mold or odor, cassette tapes, VHS, CD-ROMS, floppy discs, magazines, textbooks, yearbooks, crossword or other puzzle books, items discarded from other libraries, encyclopedia sets, computer/medical/travel books older than three years, and materials made in violation of copyright laws.

Due to space constraints, we are only able to accept one box or bag of donations at a time.

Donate during library hours: Please do not leave donated materials outside library doors after hours or put them in the book drop.

Materials donated to the library cannot be accepted on a conditional basis. Items not added to the collection cannot be returned to the donor. All containers become the property of the library.

Donation receipts are available at the Check Out Desk upon request.
