Donating Books to The Village Library
The Village Library gratefully accepts book donations on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Nearly all donated items will be sold, generating much-needed revenue for the Library. We kindly request that donated items be in good condition and not outdated. Receipts are provided to donors.
The Library is most interested in the following types of materials for inclusion in its book sale inventory:
- hardcover current fiction and non-fiction books with jackets
- biographies and autobiographies
- children’s books
- trade paperback fiction and non-fiction
- mass market paperbacks
- books of local interest
- art/coffee table books
- audiobook CDs and DVDs.
Unfortunately, the Library cannot accept magazines, reference and textbooks, travel guides, condensed or abridged materials, former library books, cassette tapes, or VHS tapes.
The Library has partnered with other charities in our area that are able to use your donations. Since 2015, the Library has worked with Christ Church Savannah to help supply more than 4,000 paperback books to our soldiers deployed overseas and stateside through the nonprofit organization Operation Paperback. The program also provides audio CDs and DVDs to military hospitals for solders being treated for brain injuries. Surplus donations are taken to eight underserved Little Free Libraries in downtown Savannah to replenish them with adult and children’s books twice a month and foster the love of reading in the community.
Books are available for sale during the Library’s regular hours of operation, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For questions about donations or sales, please call the Library (912-598-1183).
