Donate Materials?

The Friends of the Marion Library gratefully accept donations of your gently used books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs to be sold at our bookstore and semi-annual book sale. We cannot accept more than two boxes at a time. For larger donations, please contact Marlys at donationsfriends@aol.com. Drop off donations at the Check Out Desk. All proceeds support the Marion Public Library. 
 
We accept:
Fiction – paperback and hardcover
Nonfiction – paperback and hardcover
Children’s books
DVDs and CDs
Books on CD
Weekly Magazines – up to 3 months old
Monthly Magazine - up to 6 months old
 
We cannot accept:
Audiocassettes or VHS
Textbooks
Outdated Computer books or software
Records
Catalogs
Professional journals
Odds and ends – including calendars, personal journals, outdated medical and financial resources
 
Please use your best judgement about donating things that are not in good condition. If you would not purchase it, it's likely no one else will either, and we will have to recycle your donation. Save our volunteers that extra work and recycle rather than donating outdated items and things in poor condition. A receipt for your donation is available upon request; donations are tax-deductible.
 
All proceeds support the Marion Public Library. Thank you for supporting your local library.
