Book and Media Donations Policy


The library building remains closed, but we will welcome donations on a limited basis after Labor Day.

Bringing Donations to the Library

Starting September 8, 2020, donations of 3 bags/boxes or less will be accepted anytime during Drive-Thru hours:

Please box or bag your donations, and place them on the no-contact table outside the Drive-Thru service door, near the outside bookdrop.

If you have a significant amount of donations (more than 3 boxes), please email longviewlibrary@mylongview.com to set up an appointment.

The library accepts new or gently used:

At this time we cannot accept:

Books (as well as newspapers and magazines) that need to be recycled can be deposited in the blue Lions Club paper collection box near the Library's outside bookdrop and Drive-Thru service area.

Please do not place donations in the bookdrop or leave them unattended outside of Drive-Thru hours.

Donations are Tax Deductible

At your request, Library staff will provide you with a receipt that you may fill out for tax purposes. The Library staff is not qualified to determine the value of your donation. It will be up to you to assign a value for tax purposes.

What does the Longview Public Library do with donations?

All donations are greatly appreciated. Some donated materials are added to the Library's collections. Anything that cannot be added to the collection is sold at the Friends of the Library book sales or on the Internet. The money raised by sales goes to fund programming and to purchase other library materials.
