Donate Books to the Friends

We raise money for the library by selling books that have been donated by generous people like you! You can bring your donated books to the Sunnyvale Library‘s circulation desk where they can be given to library staff, and where you can obtain a tax receipt. All donations to and purchases from the Friends are tax deductible under IRS section 501(c)(3).

We request that only banker sized boxes or smaller be used for donations – no large moving boxes or heavy crates, please. You may be asked to transfer items to smaller boxes to help protect the library staff and volunteers from injury.

We can accept:

– fiction and non fiction books in good condition

– textbooks and computer books

– intact and unmarked children’s items

– music CDs

– audio books on CD

– movies on DVD

– vinyl records

– comics

Sorry, we cannot take:

– magazines or newspapers

– Reader’s Digest condensed books

– encyclopedias more than 5 years old

– audio or video cassettes

– software

– soiled, water damaged or partial books


General Guideline: if you would not give it to a friend, please do not give it to the Friends.
