Donation of Books and Other Items

Kilmer and Morningside Branch Libraries have temporarily suspended donations, as they have run out of storage space. They expect to resume taking donations in January 2018.

On behalf of the Friends of the St. Lucie County Library Association, Inc., the Library will accept hardcover and paperback books and audiovisual materials if they are in good condition. Donations will be evaluated and, if appropriate, will be added to the collection or put in the Friends of the Library book sale. Proceeds from the book sales are used to supplement Library programs.

Items not accepted include encyclopedias, damaged or mildewed books, and VHS tapes.

Donated items may be dropped off at any St. Lucie County Branch Library during regular hours (except for Morningside Branch Library, which has suspended donations until January, 2018). Locations, hours and contact information are available here. If you have a large donation, for instance 5 boxes or a hundred items, you may want to call the branch to arrange for assistance in bringing them in, but it's otherwise not necessary to call before delivering a donation. Enclosing multiple items in bags or boxes to make them easier to move will be much appreciated.

While donations of quality items are gratefully accepted, neither the Friends nor Library staff can be responsible for the valuation of a gift. We cannot appraise donated materials or indicate a value on the receipt. If desired, the donor may receive a Donation Receipt noting the number and type of materials donated.

The Friends of the St. Lucie County Library Association, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is organized to provide monetary and volunteer support to the St. Lucie County Library System.
