Q. How do I donate items to the library?
Your generous donations of new or gently used books, DVDs, videos and CDs are gratefully accepted by the Friends groups year-round at all library locations.
Donations to the King Library can be brought in and either donated directly to the Friends Bookstore on the 1st floor, through the 24/7 slot available on the outside of the building (to the right of the bookshop) or to the Welcome Desk if the bookstore is closed.
The Friends, unfortunately, cannot accept magazines, encyclopedias, or Reader’s Digest Condensed Books. Friends of Seven Trees, Pearl, & Hillview Libraries will accept textbooks in good condition; other locations will not.
