Donations.

Posted on

This post is really about two things…

The first is: Several of our patrons have come in recently asking if we’ll take donations. The simple answer is:

Yes. Yes, we will. In fact, donations from patrons like you is a big part of how we function.

So if you have any books that you just would like to find a new home for, especially those in the “gently used” category, then please consider us. And the same goes for DVDs, audiobooks, and things like that. We can always use them.

(If you’re looking for tax credit for your donations, especially during this time of year, just let us know.)

But if for some reason we can’t, we have a giveaway shelf where they can go to somebody who can use them.

And that’s part two: We have a giveaway shelf! Someone came in the other day and said to me that it was too bad that we didn’t have a paperback exchange, and I said, “Well… actually, we do!” We have a giveaway shelf where you’re free to come and find some items, and if you’d like to to exchange or just borrow those items, that’s fine too, of course.

And I gotta say, you’ll find some perpetually interesting choices on the giveaway shelf. They’re mostly in the aforementioned “gently used” paperback form, which is perfect for quick reads or if you’re traveling. You’ll find some pictures from several of the paperbacks currently on the shelf in this post, but no promises on how long they’ll be there, or what will take their place.

So please keep us in mind if you’re ever looking to donate some of your books, DVDs, or audiobooks and stop on by to check out our giveaway shelf when you get a chance.
