of donating those old books to the library?
Thank you for thinking of the Allentown Public Library.
Please call 610-820-2400 x141 to discuss your donation before bringing material to the library.
We are happy to take books and A-V material in good clean condition,
especially the following:
or former bestsellers, titles published in the last 5 years, classic mysteries
We do not need
extra issues or old runs of magazines, LP recordings, old
encyclopedias or textbooks.
If the Library already owns
something you have donated, it may be added to the collection,
sold in our book sale rack or discarded.
The library reserves the right to discard any donated
material without notifying the donor.
Unfortunately the Library cannot accept all donated material. Other organizations that appreciate donations of used books are AAUW for their annual book sale and other area public libraries.
