Materials Donations Policy

The Anne Arundel County Public Library appreciates your support for our programs and initiatives.

Donated items are sold, redistributed, or recycled depending on the need for the item or its condition. The Library may contract with a vendor for online bookselling and to recycle unsold donations.    

Guidelines for Donating Items

  • Deposit donated materials into the donations drop box at any branch. 
  • You may also deliver materials to a staff member inside any branch.
  • Please limit donations to no more than two letter-sized file boxes per week.
  • All donated materials must be in new or gently-used condition and free from mold or odor. More information about what can be donated.
