Donations and Gifts


donations welcome

Would you like to donate materials to honor a special person, event, or just because you enjoy the library? Please do! Here are guidelines to get started:

Donate New Books and Movies through

The Library maintains three wishlists of items that would benefit our collections. When ordering from one of these lists, be sure to write in the gift receipt what you would like printed on the donation book plate. All new books purchased from these lists are added to the Library collections for patrons to borrow and enjoy.

To get started, click on the links below to see our wishlists:

Donate Used Books and Movies

Do you need to downsize the number of books on your bookshelves? Have your children outgrown books that still could be read and enjoyed by others? Then please consider donating your used books to the Library!

When used materials are donated to the Library, our staff sort through donations to determine if any could be added to our collections. If not, items are passed on to our Used Book Store, Annual Book Sale, and online used book seller as appropriate. All of the funds generated in these ways go back to benefit the Library.

The Library accepts the majority of used books, magazines, and DVDs, with some exceptions. We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, or VHS tapes. Items that have mold or water damage also cannot accepted, as that damage is permanent.

Ask if You have More Questions

Do you have something else in mind? Please ask! We love to help connect books with readers and welcome questions about how you can be involved in that process.

Thank you for considering donating to the Lindsborg Community Library!
