Q

How do I donate a book?

Does the library accept donations of books? If so, is there a limit on the number of books, and where can they be dropped off?

Answer

We are happy to accept donations of any kind. You can bring them to any Omaha Public Library location and drop them off. If you know the number of hardbacks, paperbacks, DVDs. Etc., we will be able to give you a receipt for tax purposes.

Most of the time, your items will not be used for library circulation but sent to the book sales.  However we do evaluate all donations before sending them.  In rare cases, if something is in great demand like, say, a current blockbuster best-seller or DVD in good condition, or would have a particular use for our patrons, such as a unique book about Omaha history, then we might add it to our collection.  There is no hard-and-fast rule, but items are judged on a case-by-case basis.
