Friends: Book Donations

How to Donate

Friends welcomes the donation of gently used books (fiction, non-fiction, children’s), games, puzzles, CDs, DVDs, and audio books on CD, and vintage ephemera all year round. Textbooks at the college level and higher, and that have been published in the last 3 years are also welcome.  Items should be in saleable condition.  

Donations may be left at the Friends Donation Material Drop any time the Library is open. DO NOT deposit donations in the Library’s Book Return bins.

For donations of more than 30 items at one time, or, if assistance is needed for drop-off, contact Friends at 973-992-4600 x505 in advance to make arrangements.

A tax receipt is available from the main desk.  

We are unable to accept and respectfully request that you arrange for private disposal of the following: Books in poor, non-saleable condition, magazines, VHS tapes, cassettes, encyclopedias, textbooks older than 3 years, and textbooks below the college level. Friends is not able to sell, re-donate, or re-direct certain materials. Disposing of these items increases our recycling costs, and absorbs limited volunteer time. If you have questions about this policy, please contact Friends at 973-994-4600 x505 or email at
