Donate to the Library

  • Donating Money

    Monetary donations using the form below go into the Friends of the Library fund.  Your support helps provide funding for library technology, renovations, and other special projects. If you are interested in more specific giving opportunities, please contact Sharon Holderman. If you are interested in donating to the Archives, please use the Archives form.

  • Donating Books & Physical Items

    We are grateful you have considered donating materials to the Volpe Library!

    If you want a tax receipt for the donation of your items, you must follow these detailed instructions. If you drop off items before receiving the email described in step 5 of the detailed instructions, your donations become anonymous. You will not receive a tax receipt for anonymous donations.

    If you wish to donate items anonymously, please bring them to the front desk anytime the library is open.  We will review them for usefulness and relevance, and choose which ones to add to our collection.  We will find a home for items we do not add using Better World Books or other avenues.

    We do NOT accept the following:

    • Damaged items (mold, stained, warped, bent, broken spines, pest damage, missing covers, etc.)
    • Items with pages missing, damaged, or written on/highlighted
    • Items with strong odors (smoke, pets, food)
    • Personal journals or notebooks - check with Archives & Special Collections
    • Print journals, periodicals, or magazines
    • VHS tapes

    Please contact Holly Mills with questions about physical donations.
