Donate Books

Did you know? All of our Friends Chapters have bookstores and accept  book donations! We happily accept donated books in good condition.  Please drop off donated books to your nearest HCPLC branch bookstore during regular hours. Through your donation, the sales from our bookstores help support and enhance our libraries.

At this time, our Friends are unable to pick up donations. If you have a large donation that might overwhelm our workspace please call the Friends number to make special arrangements. Please also keep in mind that we do not accept video tapes, textbooks, atlases, encyclopedias, or most other materials with outdated information. If you have additional questions about donated materials please contact us at 813-273-3616.
