Book Donation Policy

The Rockland Public Library accepts donations of good used books, videos and audio. These may be added to the library's collection, or they may be sold by The Friends of Rockland Library in their bookshop or book sales, or online. Proceeds of these sales go to the Rockland Public Library in the form of new books or programs.  However, there are some things we cannot accept because past experience tells us we cannot use or re-sell these items. They include:

• Damaged books (these are essentially worthless and should be disposed of)
• Mildewed books (mildew is "contagious" and can quickly spread to other books)
• Encyclopedias
• Most textbooks
• Medical or health books more than 5 years old
• Technical or computer books more than 5 years old
• Readers Digest condensed books
• Vinyl records
• Magazines or other periodicals
• Remainders from other organization's book sales

Because storage space is tight, the library can only accept 2-3 bags or boxes of books at a time. If you have more to donate, please make an appointment for your delivery. Please call the library at 594-0310 to leave your name, telephone number and the best times for you to bring in your donations. We will call you back to make an appointment, and do our best to accommodate your schedule.

Thank you for your donation! Your support helps keep our library strong.
