  • Donation of Gently Used Materials
    The library greatly appreciates book donations and other items of value.  Donated items are evaluated according to the same criteria as purchased materials, and are only accepted with the explicit understanding that they may be retained, discarded and used at the discretion of library staff and the Friends of the Library.

    Criteria for acceptance of book donations

    Materials should not be left outside the library or placed in the book drop. Please bring all donations into the library to the circulation desk.

    Contact the library in person, by phone at 610-446-3082, or by email at library@haverfordlibrary.org if you have questions about items you are considering donating to the library and if you have more than one bag or box of books to donate.
