Where Can I Donate My Books?

Currently, the Alachua County Library District and the  Friends of the Library are not taking donations, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait for them to re-open to find a home for your well-loved materials. The following places are accepting used books, CDs, DVDs, and artwork so that you may free up space in your home. Feel free to also contact your local thrift store and see if they are willing to take your donated items.

There are also several free little libraries in local neighborhoods that always welcome gently loved books. Look for yours today!
