Friends Accepting Used Books and Media Donations
A designated book and media donation box has been placed near the library entrance, by the bike rack, in the front parking lot on Harrison Street. You can't miss it.
If you have boxes of books, we encourage you to fill out this handy form and bring it to the library or use it as a guide to contact the Friends via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will respond to you within 24 hours. Unfortunately, there is no place, at this time, to receive boxes of used books at the library. Also, please use this email address if you have any questions.
Your book/media donations are instrumental in funding many of the Port Townsend Library programs offered each year. These programs include, but are not limited too, the very popular annual Community Read, Book Lover's Cafe, author events, summer reading for kids and adults, programs for babies and children and much more.
The used book and media sale occurs three times a year: March, June and October. Our next sale is October 11, 2014.
