Donate Books or Items of Historical Significance

Donating Books, CDs and DVDs

The Richland Library Friends and Foundation welcomes your donations of gently used books, CDs and DVDs. Your donations will be taken to the library’s Operations Center where volunteers will sort, price and shelve them for resale at the book sales, held several times a year to raise money for library programs.

Library staff members will be happy to accept your donations and give you a receipt for the number of items donated, but they will not place a dollar value on your donation. Please make sure you assess the value of your materials for tax purposes (if appropriate) prior to dropping off your donation. Please make sure also that your books are in boxes or bags that will not need to be returned to you, as staff will not be able to repack your donations into other boxes or containers.

If accepted these materials are added to the collection and are available for in-house genealogical and historical research.  If you have materials that you’d like to donate, please contact the Walker Local and Family History Center for more information or visit our online uploading form to share your materials.
