The Friends of the San Bernardino Public Library welcome donations of used books and other materials that are in good condition. The Library staff will evaluate materials for addition to the collection in accordance with the Library Materials Selection Policy. Gift materials that cannot be used in the collection will be given to the Friends for sale in their bookstore, which in turn benefits the Library.
Donations can include books (all genres, hardback and paperback); records/vinyl; Audiobooks; audio cassettes; VHS/DVD/Blu-ray; sewing patterns; puzzles & games; magazines; newspapers; jewelry; scarves; purses; perfume/cologne; art supplies; school supplies; computer games/software; video games; and CD’s.
The Friends of the Library sell the items in their bookstore and at their book sales at the Feldheym Central Library. The proceeds from these book sales are donated back to the Library to support programs. Receipts for tax purposes are available in the Library Administration Office or at the Information Desks.
