Donations - Check it Out

So you've finally gotten around to some serious decluttering. College graduates are moving out, high school seniors have their college acceptances or you might be downsizing.  Are you wondering what to do with those old college textbooks, best sellers from back in the nineties, more than gently used paperbacks or favorite bedtime story books?  Many people don't want to throw books away.  You might think the best place is to drop them off at the library.  We appreciate your good intentions but we really can't accept them.  Very few donations are added to the collection; some might make it onto our 'Littlest Bookstore" shelves.  Sadly, the majority are carted off by the custodial staff for recycling.  We can suggest you call local hospitals, hospice, goodwill or local senior centers.  A search on the internet may turn up sites that pick up books left curbside.  New City Library no longer holds book sales, but other libraries in the county do and might accept your donations.  Some phone numbers you might find useful:  Goodwill, 624-0187, Salvation Army 620-7200.
