GUIDELINES FOR BOOK AND OTHER MATERIAL DONATIONS TO THE FRIENDS OF THE BEDFORD LIBRARY
As always, the Friends welcome your donation of books for our On-Going Book Sale and our fall, winter and spring sales. Book donations are the lifeblood of our fund-raising efforts. Books are accepted year round and can be brought to either the Library Services desk or if multiple boxes are being delivered please bring them to the loading dock at Bedford Central Library and ring the doorbell during regular library hours. Book donations should only be left when the library is OPEN. You may leave UP TO 6 COPIER PAPER SIZED BOXES OF BOOKS. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 6 BOXES PLEASE CONTACT Martha Johnson at email@example.com or 540-874-0480 for further instructions. Please do not leave books at the front door of the library.
The Friends appreciate your donations. For any future donations, please help our staff and volunteers who sort them by observing the following guidelines.
We gratefully accept:
A few pointers about what NOT to donate: We don’t like to think that we have limits, but some items are simply not appealing to the Friends’ Book sale clientele for a variety of reasons, and all donations require volunteer time to sort and space to shelve and store – both of which are precious resources, always in short supply. You can help! Use these guidelines to sort, weed and discard inappropriate materials before donating to the Friends.
PLEASE DO NOT DONATE:
PLEASE CHECK YOUR DONATIONS
