Book Donations: How to Make Your Donations Really Count
Book Sale
Our patrons are so generous and the Friends of the Plymouth District Library has received so many donations of books over the last few months. 

In fact, our Friends volunteers have been a little buried processing the sheer volume of donations coming in. 

For this reason, we want to gratefully share a few hints about what kinds of donations benefit the library and which do not. 

The donations that most benefit the library are donations of books, music and DVDs that are resellable. Not sure what that means? Just take a browse through the book sale racks in the meeting room lobby. 

Especially helpful are adult and teen fiction across all genres; children’s fiction, board books, easy readers and picture books; large print; arts and history. 

What we cannot resell (and would therefore be grateful to not receive) are books that are musty or smoky; magazines (including National Geographic); textbooks; health or business titles that are more than 5 years old; cassette tapes or VHS tapes.

Thank you again for donating and for giving special consideration to what benefits the library.
