Book Donations

The Friends of the Farmington Libraries are currently accepting donations.

We are very grateful for your donations! Without your generosity, we would not be able to raise money at our yearly book sales and in the BOOK NOOK that benefit the many library programs that we all enjoy.

2021 Book Donation Guidelines:

Based on our experience with donations, we do have to impose some guidelines as to age and condition of the books. Books must be in excellent condition, free of dust, mildew or mold and published after 2015 (except for classics). Books must be clean, not tattered or written in.

As you collect books for donation, consider these rules:
• No adult hardcover fiction books before 2015.
• No travel guides, finance, medical/health/diet books before 2015.
• No computer books, ‘IDIOTS’ & ‘DUMMIES’ books before 2015.
• No CDs or DVDs (except Great Course)
