Book Donations

Book Donations Guidelines for CCPL and Citizens for the C4CCPL
Donations are accepted on Saturdays when the bookstore is open. 
Donations can also be made on Wednesdays. To make a Wednesday donation, call 301-934-9001 x122 or x126, and speak with one of the volunteers so they are expecting you on the Wednesday you want to bring books by.

Sorry, but we cannot use the following items: (They just do not sell.)

  • VHS Tapes
  • Audio Books on Cassettes
  • Magazines or Textbooks
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed Books
  • National Geographic Magazines
  • Books or Encyclopedias older than 5 years
  • Items with mold or mildew

Do you BUY Audiobooks, DVDs and Blu-Rays? Do you watch them once and stick them on a shelf?
Consider donating them to your favorite library branch or to C4CCPL.
Share the entertainment and get a tax deduction!

Donations are $$ TAX DEDUCTIBLE $$!
If you would like a tax receipt, please count how many of each category (paperbacks, hardbacks, DVDs, etc) you have brought for donation.
