Book Donations

Update as of September 2020: The Friends of the Library are pleased to announce that book donations will be accepted on a limited basis by APPOINTMENT ONLY beginning Sunday 9/27 at the library.  Appointments can only be made for Sundays, when the library is closed. Call Tony Pisacane at 415-987-9026 and leave a message to make an appointment. We cannot currently accept book donations without an appointment.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our book sales are on hold for the foreseeable future.  We will keep you updated as we receive information.

IMG_0016.jpgWhy Donate? Thank you for you interest in donating books to the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library. Proceeds from our book sales generate the largest source of  funds which serve our mission in making the Library a state-of-the-art center for the community.

How to Donate:  Book donations can be deposited in the ‘donations’ shed at the rear of the library during hours that the library is open. (IMPORTANT: see update above on donation process during COVID-19 pandemic). A library staff member will provide a receipt if required. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent the law allows.

Please note: We gratefully accept donations of books in very good/excellent condition, CDs, DVDs, and vinyl records.  We can no longer accept the following: dirty or damaged books, textbooks, encyclopedias, library discards, magazines, books on audio cassette, or VHS tapes.  If you have torn, damaged, or dirty books, we are advised by Sonoma County Waste Management that you can put them in the blue recycling bin if they are soft cover, or if the hard covers have been removed and discarded. Thank you!
