BOOKS DONATION POLICY

 

The Monmouth County Library appreciates donations of books and other materials. Donations of books and other materials are accepted at most Branch Locations during hours at the discretion of the librarian. The Library staff does not have the expertise to appraise donated materials. Donated materials may not be left outside the library or in the bookdrop. For additional information or questions about specific items, contact the library location nearest you.
