Book Donation Guidelines
Stack of books
We accept donations of books and DVDs that are in new or like-new condition. If you are donating more than one bag of books at a time, please call ahead at (207) 439-1553 x2 so we may assist you.

We cannot accept the following items:
  • VHS or cassette tapes
  • Encyclopedias
  • Magazines
  • Nonfiction books more than 10 years old
  • Textbooks
  • Anything damaged, dirty, or worn

If your donations do not meet these guidelines, you can place them in the white bin located in the parking lot of the Taylor building. This goes to a company that resells and recycles old books. The library receives a portion of these proceeds.
