Book Donations

Your donations of new and gently used books, dvds, or cds greatly support our library. Donated materials will either be added to the collection, or sold by the Friends of the Larkspur Library in our ongoing book sales. Materials that cannot be sold or added to the collection are donated to local schools, prisons, hospitals and other non-profit organizations.The financial benefit to the library from your donations is significant and helps to purchase new materials and support library programs. 

Materials that we prefer to accept for donation are books in good to new condition, with no signs of mildew or yellowing, highlighting or underlining, nor torn or missing pages. Fiction and popular nonfiction published within the last five years, cookbooks, gardening books, home design and art books are easiest for the library to add and sell. We cannot add or sell outdated business, medical, textbooks, technical and science books. We accept DVD’s in good condition, and complete undamaged sets of audio books on CD.

Donations of up to 4 bags or boxes may be brought to the library main office during library open hours. Please call the library to inquire about larger donations, 415-927-5005. Your donations are tax deductible. We will give you a signed receipt when you drop off your donation.
