Memorial Donations

The library welcomes gifts that present an opportunity to carry on the life interests of an individual or group, or that celebrates a special and meaningful occasion. Donors may suggest a subject, or selection will be made by library staff. The donor's name and the person or organization being honored are inscribed on a book plate placed in each book. The materials are then placed on our shelves for the enjoyment of all library patrons. For more information about making a Memorial Donation, please contact Ashley Ware, Administrative Librarian, at 623-930-3556.

Book and Material Donations

The library appreciates your donations of books, DVDs and audiobooks in good condition. All items are evaluated by librarians to determine if donations will be added to the collection. Donations not added to the collection will be sold in our sales or otherwise redistributed. Your gifts are tax deductible; please note that staff are not permitted to assess the value of donated materials.

Books and material donations are accepted at all library locations.  Please call 623-930-3600 for more information about donating items.
