Santa Fe Public Library

Book and Media Donations

Beginning April 1st, the Friends volunteers will accept book and media donations by appointment. The only locations are the Main Library and the Southside Branch Library. To leave a message with the preferred location, please call 505-955-2839. To email, books@santafelibraryfriends.org

Due to space constraints, we ask for donations to be no more than the equivalent of 6 paper sacks / 4 banker boxes. Multiple appointments may be needed.

We can only accept clean, sell-able books and media. Please recycle worn books and media.

Thank you for helping the Friends raise funds for the Santa Fe Public Library,

Book Sales Committee

 

Santa Fe Public Library gratefully accepts gifts of new or used books and media items, such as CDs and DVDs, but the library does not accept the following:

  • Dirty, shabby, soiled, moldy, water-damaged, or animal-damaged books
  • Books that are ripped, torn, or with excessive marking
  • Reader’s Digest condensed books
  • Encyclopedias, real estate, law, medical, or text books

Books and media items given to the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library are reviewed by library staff for possible addition to the library collection.

Materials not selected for addition to the library are reviewed by the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library for possible sale at their book stores or book sales. All proceeds from the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library are given to the library.

All donations become property of the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library. No conditions may be placed on donated materials. A receipt for your gift is available from any Library Information Desk; however, receipts for gifts only indicate type and number of items donated, not monetary value.
