Book Donations

The library accepts used book and DVD donations. Donated materials should be brought to the Front Desk. We ask that you limit your donations to 3-4 boxes at one time. Once donated, the material becomes the property of the Bud Werner Memorial Library.

Acceptable Materials

  • Newer paperback and hardback books in good condition are preferred.
  • DVDs  with the covers or cases intact
  • Recent bestsellers

Unacceptable Materials

  • Magazines
  • Textbooks
  • Cassette tapes
  • Music CDs
  • LP records
  • VHS tapes
  • Books on CD
  • Encyclopedia sets
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed Book

All gift materials are evaluated for their usefulness for the Library’s collection using the same selection criteria or guidelines that apply to all collection acquisitions. Gift items are not automatically added to the collection. If materials are deemed to be inappropriate for the library’s collection, they may be given to another library or non- profit organization, or designated for the library’s book sale.

If added to the collection, donated materials shall not necessarily be housed or placed in a special collection or location. If requested, the library will give the donor a receipt specifying the number of items donated with the understanding that the library does not assign monetary value to the donated items.
