#CutTheCrap Challenge: Donate to Your Library

keep-calm-and-love-your-library

We are in the digital age.  With so many electronic ways to lose yourself in a good piece of literary work, actual books themselves are becoming a bit of a novelty.  We enjoy the feel of a good hard cover, so there are a few books that we have purchased over the last couple years.

Mostly though, the Kindle has become a staple.  Everything is stored in the Amazon Cloud, and we can read from anywhere.  The purchase of books need not take up much space at all.

That being said, we still have a few shelves in the house of books that mean a lot to us that we probably will not let go of.

And with that being said… I can think of a box or two in the garage that are full.  It’s time for another trip to the library.  But, you don’t need to stop at just the books.

Libraries accepts donations of used books, DVD’s and magazines.

Items that meet the library’s selection policy and are in good condition will find their way to the shelves for others to enjoy.  Items that may not make the ‘good condition’ cut can be sold to help raise funds for your local library.

You can take your donations to the library any time it is open. Some libraries have donation bins… while others accept the items right at the counter.  If you would like a receipt for your donation, you can usually get one at the place where you would check your books out normally… but keep in mind that the library staff is not qualified to determine the value of your donation, but they can confirm the number and type of items you donated. It will be up to you to assign a value for tax purposes.
