The Library receives gently-used or new donated materials on behalf of the Friends of the Louisville Free Public Library. The Friends of the Library then allows the Library to select any items it needs to add to the collections at the Main and branch libraries. Materials not selected for the Library’s collection are then sold by the Friends at public sales.
Proceeds from the sale of donated materials support special Library activities including the Read With Me reading program for preschoolers, parents and caregivers and scholarships for library employees.
To join the Friends of the Library, call 574-1648 or ask for membership information at any library.
You can drop donations off at any of our locations. If you would like a tax deduction slip, just ask one of the staff and they can assist you.
We accept the following donations:
- Adult and Children's non-fiction books published within the last 5 years
- Unabridged audio books on CD or digital Playaway
- Current adult fiction books
- Current paperback books
- New and classic children's fiction books
- Music CDs
All materials must be in good condition.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us at 574-1611.
