Book Donations Welcome

The library will gladly accept book donations to possibly add to our collection or to supplement our ongoing “Book Nook” sale tables. Listed below are a few guidelines to help you help us.

Items Needed

  • Recent best sellers
  • Clean copies of “classic” titles
  • Current magazines
  • Audiovisual materials (videos, DVDs, CDs, tapes)
  • Children’s books

Items NOT Needed (and not saleable)

  • Books in poor condition (yellowed or torn pages, broken bindings, musty)
  • Textbooks
  • Reader’s Digest condensed books
  • Encyclopedias and other dated information


  • Bring donations to the library’s back door and ring the door bell. If no one is available to open the door, please bring your donations to the circulation desk
  • Place donations in boxes or bags; a maximum of 2 boxes
  • If you need assistance carrying your donations, please call ahead to make an appointment, 518-458-9274

If you would like a receipt for tax purposes, we provide signed, dated acknowledgement letters for the items, but cannot assess their value.
