Book Donations
As always, the Friends welcome your donation of books for our On-Going Book Sale and our three Book Sales, in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Book donations are the life blood of our fund-raising efforts. We accept clean books in good condition year round. History, gardening and crafts are especially needed. Please no donations of National Geographic, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books or any textbooks. For a more detailed description of our Guidelines for Book Donations, visit this page.

Books are accepted year round and can be brought to either the circulation desk or if multiple boxes are being delivered please bring to the loading dock at Bedford Central Library and ring the doorbell during library hours.
