2021 Book Donation Guidelines
Based on our experience with donations, we do have to impose some guidelines as to age and condition of the books. Books must be in excellent condition, free of dust, mildew, no torn pages/covers and published after 2015 (except for classics)
As you collect books for donation, consider these rules:
- No adult hardcover fiction books before 2015.
- No travel guides, finance, medical/health/diet books before 2015.
- No computer books, ‘IDIOTS’ & ‘DUMMIES’ books before 2015.
- No audiocassettes, CDs, DVDs or VHS tapes (except GREAT COURSES)
- No magazines, encyclopedias or Reader’s Digest books
- No large sets of books
