The next Donation Day is scheduled for Thursday, October 12, 2023, 9:00 AM – 10:45 AM. If we have rain, we will cancel the Donation Day. All donations benefit your local library. We accept coffee table books and collectible books and we always need children’s books and LP’s.
Book donations to the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library are accepted on scheduled Donation Days only. We are not accepting book donations outside of designated donations dates/times. No early drop offs. Please do not leave books by the library door or book drop.
Donation limit is 6 boxes or bags per donor. All donations must be checked in by a volunteer at the table by the sheds behind the library at 755 West Napa Street in Sonoma.
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.
Thank you for you interest in donating books to the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library.
