Shrewsbury Public Library gladly accepts donations of:
Books and other items in good
condition that are clean and mold-free: including children’s books, CD’s, and
DVDs, large print books, commercially recorded items: music on CDs, and video games.
We cannot accept items which are
unhealthy to handle, dirty, moldy, smelly, burnt, chewed, damp or missing
covers. We also cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias and magazines.
Donated items may be added to the library’s
collection, given to the Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library for their
book sale, or disposed of through book recycling programs.
As the receiving institution, the
Library cannot assign a value to the books you donate. Donors must determine the
value of donated items.
The library has limited space for
accepting and storing donations, so there are times when we must limit the
number of donations, or turn away donations entirely. It is always best to call
in advance if you wish to donate books, especially if donating more than three
bags or boxes. The Circulation Services Desk can be reached at 508-842-0081 X3
can assist you.
