Book Donation Guidelines


We accept book donations for our book sale. This allows us to raise funds for the library while creating a great event for our community.
Note: All book donations are at The Baird Community Center. Donations are not accepted at the South Orange library!


What do we accept as donations?

All type (genres) of books - gardening, crafts, art, CHILDRENS, novels, hardcovers, paperbacks, fiction and non-fiction, Sci-fi, romance, how-to, parenting, etc.
We also accept music CD's, DVD's and book-on-CD.

** We cannot take: cassettes tapes, VHS tapes, text books, dictionaries, encyclopedias. No dirty, moldy or wet books please! **
Our volunteers will take a quick look  BEFORE books get donated. This helps assure that problem items are not accidentally donated. Books we cannot sell create difficulties for our volunteers with disposal and transportation.
