Donations can be delivered to the circulation desks at Kent Island or Centreville libraries during regular library hours. We ask you to limit your donations to two bags worth of books per visit, due to limited storage space. Please do not leave books outside of the buildings or in the library lobbies.

Do you have a sizable donation to make? Plan to come to one of our Book Donation Days scheduled throughout the year. View our events page for information on upcoming Donation Days.  We can accept boxes of good quality books at these days.
