Thank you for your generous donations of books that make the Friends of the Cheshire Public Library book sales a success. We are totally dependent on your generosity and you always come through for us. Please consider donating your gently used books in good condition for the book sale. Good condition means books have no torn pages, minimal underlining or highlighting, no marginal comments, and no smells of must, smoke, or mold. If they have orange or black spots on the page edges, this is a sign of mold and you should discard them in your trash.
In choosing books to donate, keep in mind that we take:
- Fiction (hardcover or paperback)
- Non-fiction books of Art, Music, History, Philosophy, Health, Humor, Psychology, Religion, Biography, Poetry, Sports, Travel, Cooking, Home and Garden, How-to-Books, Hobbies, etc.
- Children’s books for all ages in good condition.
- CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks that are in good condition.
- Recent textbooks
What we are not able to take are: encyclopedias, videos, cassettes, records, magazines, Reader’s Digest Condensed books, or personally recorded audio and video tapes.
All donations should be placed in the wooden Friends’ lobby sale area on the main level of the Cheshire Library during library open hours.
