DONATION GUIDELINES

Should you wish to make a monetary donation to the Friends to help us support the Davis Public Library, please go to the Home page and scroll down to the Donate button.

We are once again accepting book/DVD/CD donations. All large donations are by appointment only since the library is closed. To make an appointment contact Rory Osborne at rory@davislibraryfriends.org .

Small donations of several items can be placed in the Friends Donation slot accessible from the Library parking lot.  It is marked as the drop-off point for both books and magazines and connects directly to the Friends sorting room.

When your books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs are donated to the library they are put to good use. Your donation might become part of the library collection if there is a need for it.  Many donations are sold at the Friends book sales, at the Friends book store in Davis, Logos Books , and at the Library Reading Garden. Book donations are made to various groups including other Friends groups, community clinics, local schools, other county libraries, social agencies, Better World Books, and the county jail and juvenile hall.
Magazines are once again accepted.  News or literary magazines may be up to 6 months old.  Other types of magazines may be up to 2 years old.

NEW:  We are now accepting donations of Games and Puzzles, which will be sold at our book sales.
