The Garfield County Public Library Foundation is always grateful for your support, whether it comes in the form of a financial donation, donation of materials, or donation of time as a volunteer.
For a donation of $25 you can purchase a book in someone’s name. Each book will receive a special book plate honoring the memory of a loved one, dedicating the book in honor of someone, or celebrating a milestone such as a birthday or anniversary. Books can be designated in honor of an individual, family, organization or even a pet and can be selected by subject or, in some cases, by title.
Donate Used Books & Materials
The Garfield County Public Library District accepts books, CDs and DVDs in good condition. Library staff members evaluate all materials to see if the materials can be added to our collection. Materials not added to the collection may be sold at Friends of the Library book sales. The Library tries to recycle or sell any unacceptable materials. On-going sales are available in each branch and an online book sale through Better World Books is available through our website.
We do not accept textbooks, cassette tapes, videotapes, records, magzines (including National Geographic), Reader's Digest condensed books, broken or damaged items, items that are missing parts, non-book or media items (e.g. toys, calendars, cards, etc.), and personally recorded audio or video items.
Because of space limitations, we cannot accept more than two boxes or bags unless arrangements are made. For larger donations, please call your local branch directly to make arrangements. We accept donations at any library branch during open hours. Click here for information on our branch locations and hours.
Receipts are available if desired. We are unable to appraise donated materials.
