Donate Books & Items

Our main donation hours are Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 AM – 11 AM.

Volunteers may be available during those donation hours to assist with loading/unloading materials. If you need assistance bringing donations inside, please plan to visit during the scheduled donation times, or call the library to arrange a time. Small volume donations (3 or fewer boxes) can be accepted whenever the library is open. If you plan to donate more than 5 boxes of items, please visit during donation hours or call us a 717-560-6441.
Please have all items pre-boxed or bagged in non-returnable containers. Please do not put donations into the book drops.
