Yes, the Library accepts donations of books, DVDs, CDs, and records. We no longer accept donations of VHS tapes or audio cassettes. Small donations may be brought in at any time - if we are closed they can simply be placed in our book drop. Large donations in boxes or bags can only be brought in during Library hours. Please do not leave boxes outside of the Library while we are closed. If you are donating more than 3 boxes, we ask that you give us a call at 817-367-0166 so that we can prepare space for your donation. We do have a dolly that can be requested to help bring your boxes into the Library from your car.
Depending on the condition and age of the donated item, as well as whether the Library already has a copy, we may add it to our collection. However, the vast majority of donated items are given to the Friends of the Library for their book sale. There is one large book sale every year, typically in September or October, as well as a single sale cart that is always located near the front desk of the Library and offers a constantly rotating selection of books for 50¢ each.
The Friends of the Library are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Library through fundraising and volunteer work. If you would like to join this worthwhile organization, please fill out the sign-up form here.
