  • Cookbooks & Gardening books
  • ‘Coffee Table’ or other special interests books (antiques, collectibles, art, etc)
  • CD’s, DVD’s, books on CD

We do not need:

  • Books in poor condition
  • Textbooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Magazines
  • Readers Digest condensed books
  • Dated information such as travel guides, business books & computer books & programs prior to 2008
  • LP’s (records!), VHS tapes, cassettes & books on audio cassette

Tax Statements:

Other helpful suggestions:

If possible, please limit your donations to one or two boxes or bags at a time. Donations may be brought to the circulation desks at the Barney Library or main Farmington Library throughout the year.
