People may get a start on their spring cleaning by clearing out bookcases, CD shelves and DVD cabinets for items to give to Friends of Pierce County Library System.
Friends of the Libraries welcome donations of gently used books at any of Pierce County Library‚Äôs 17 branches. Most Friends organizations also want used CDs, DVDs and videos and some request magazines. Please contact your local library to learn whether they also would like these items.
The Friends groups sell these items at book sales. The proceeds go towards paying for programs with authors, story tellers and other fun events to make them free for kids and adults. Friends organizations also purchase furnishings and other needs at their local libraries.
Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
