Can I donate old books and magazines to the library?

Yes, newer items and items in good condition will be considered for the library collection. If not added by the library, items are passed along to the Friends of the library for their annual book sale. Items the Friends will take include:

  • Books for all ages
  • Books in foreign languages
  • Books of all kinds: fiction and non-fiction
  • Books on all subjects
  • CDs
  • DVDs
  • Puzzles and games

Donated items may be dropped off at any Garland library location. If you need assistance carrying in your donations, please ask for help at the Check- out Desk. Any books not used by the library or the Friends will go to a special recycler and all funds earned from recycling go to the Friends of the Library to be used for the benefit of the Garland Libraries.
