Quick Links

The Daviess County Library accepts all donations. Gift materials will be added if they meet the same standards required of purchased materials. Items that do not meet these standards may be used for our deposit collections or book sale, such as outdated titles, duplicate titles, or format unsuitable for our collection.

The library will not add the following items to the collection, but will sell at the Book Sale:

  • Newspapers or catalogs
  • Textbooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Readers Digest Condensed Books
  • VHS videos

Ask yourself these questions every time you consider donating used items to the library:

  • Are they in good condition?
  • Are they musty, dusty, or have an odor?
  • Is the information in the non-fiction items current? Is the item outdated (and would the library need an outdated title)?
  • Is the fiction title one that I have seen in the library?
  • Are there any loose or missing pages?
  • Would the library want a book that another library had discarded?

If you need a receipt for tax purposes or other reasons, the library will issue a receipt for the number of items donated, but we cannot assign a monetary value to your donations. No label or recognition of the donor is associated with any donated item.
