Book Donation guidelines

Please donate your books and DVDs to the library

Since opening we have replaced most of the books we inherited with new or better quality copies. Many come from donations from the Community which saves us buying them.

Q- What condition of the books do you want? 

A - We are a library and that donated books need to be of good quality to be useful. Please do not dump a clear out of old brown books. It creates so much work disposing of them. Thanks

Q -  When can I bring books? : 

A - You can bring books at any time we are open. 

Q - What do you do with donated books? 

A - Those we need for our readers go on the shelves, others are kept for the next book sale and any that fail to sell are sent to an online seller. So we make the most of every one in decent condition.

Q - What type of books? 

A- All TYPES of  book - (fiction or non fiction, adult or children) but please see below.   We  welcome DVDs and children's books which suffer heavy use in the library .

The guideline is whether YOU  would borrow it! If in doubt just ask!

Please do not give us the following:

  • Books without bar codes or ISBN numbers in case we sell them on line.  Unless it is a rare 1st Edition!
  • Books in poor condition, dirty or mouldy  - sadly all too often we are treated as a convenient dump from a house clearance.... Which means we have to take the books to the rubbish tip ourselves.
  • Encyclopedia sets and dictionaries - There is no longer any demand as it is all on the internet
  • Magazines and catalogues.
  • Foreign Language books
  • Audio Cassettes
  • Video Cassettes
