Donations

Book and AV donations
Gently used book and audio-visual donations are accepted at the Library. Items donated are tax deductible. Material that isn’t added to the Library’s circulating collection is saved for the Friends of the Cary Area Library (FOCAL) bi-annual book sales. Items that are not sold are donated to local area charities or are recycled, so nothing is wasted. Your donation is tax deductible– we have forms available upon request at the time of donation. Please note, we do not accept encyclopedias and reference sets, yearbooks, textbooks over 5 years old, VHS and cassette tapes.
