Donations of gently used books are accepted during the sales -- please no more than two boxes. At this time, we are not able to accept large donations due to a lack of storage space with the closing of the 6th Avenue library building.
The Friends of the Marion Library gratefully accept donations of your gently used books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs to be sold at semi-monthly book sales at 1095 6th Ave.
Donations are accepted ONLY during our semi-monthly sales, and we cannot accept more than two boxes at a time. For larger donations, please contact Lindsey at FriendsBookDonations@marionpubliclibrary.org. We cannot pick up book donations.
All proceeds from sales support the Marion Public Library!

We cannot accept:
Audiocassettes or VHS
Encyclopedia sets older than 10 years

Please use your best judgement about donating things that are not in good condition. If you would not purchase it, it's likely no one else will either, and we will have to recycle your donation. Save our volunteers that extra work and recycle rather than donating outdated items and things in poor condition. A receipt for your donation is available upon request; donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for supporting your local library!
