Material Donation

The Lamont Memorial Free Library appreciates your donations of new or gently used materials. Items may be added to the collection if they satisfy our Collection Development Policy criteria; most donations are sorted and placed in the Library’s Book Sale to support library services and programs.

The Library accepts the following types of materials:

  • Books (fiction and non-fiction, hardcover and paperback, large print, children’s books)
  • Audio CDs, Books on CD, DVDs, and Blu-ray
  • Console games
  • Other items of local, historical interest (please call ahead)

The Library does not accept these types of materials:

  • Encyclopedias
  • Dated material (e.g., almanacs, computer books, buying guides, directories)
  • Reader’s Digest condensed books
  • Newspapers
  • Textbooks
  • VHS Tapes

All donated materials must be in good condition

  • We do not accept musty, mildewed, stained or discolored items.
  • All materials must be complete and intact.

How to donate:

  • Please call the Lamont Memorial Free Library to assure we are accepting donations and have the space for them at this time.
  • All materials must be brought to the library; we cannot pick up materials from another location.

Are donations tax-deductible?

  • The Lamont Memorial Free Library may give a receipt for tax purposes, but will not appraise or estimate the value of the materials.
