Library to begin accepting book donations again

Warren Public Library will soon begin accepting book donations again.

Policies at the library were dramatically changed at the library due to COVID-19.

“The Warren Public Library will begin accepting book donations two days per month, beginning Thursday, June 17,” according to a release from Director Kelli Knapp.

The library has adopted the following schedule for receiving donations:

¯ second Monday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and

¯ third Thursday of each month from 3 to 7 p.m.

Donations will not be accepted at any other times; a volunteer will scan all donated materials.

Acceptable materials include books – hardcover and paperback, fiction and non-fiction, and vintage; DVDs, CDs, and puzzles and games.

Items that will not be accepted include: older textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, bibles, Reader’s Digest books, magazines, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and vinyl records.

“All items must be pleasing to the eye and nose and ear,” Knapp said. “We cannot accept items that must be trashed or recycled or are otherwise unusable by others.”

“We are looking forward to accepting our community’s generous donations,” she said.
