How Do I ...?
Book Donations

Thank you for considering the Friends of the Library for your book donations! 

We happily accept good, clean, used books and videos.  (Please do not give us any musty, moldy or dirty books!)

If you have a small quantity, (one grocery bag) you can donate it at any of our branch libraries.  However, if you have a few bags/boxes, we ask that you take them to our warehouse/Book Center. 

Location:  1301 N. Reynolds Rd., Toledo, OH  43615
(Reynolds Corners Shopping Center, southwest corner of Reynolds and Dorr Sts). 

Hours:  Friday mornings 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Books are accepted at this time specifically, because we are staffed by volunteers during these hours and they are here to help you. 
If you have any questions, please call 419.259.5455.

Again, thank you for your consideration and donation!
