Because of the recent pandemic, Friends has needed to adjust the Book Donation process. Due to volunteer and space constraints, we can now only accept a maximum of TEN donation appointments daily, district-wide. We offer Curbside Service for Donation Drop-offs on an appointment-only basis at limited locations. To schedule an appointment, please fill out the

Request for Donation Drop-Off Appointment Form.
