Book Donations

Book donations are welcomed.

  1. Donations of gently used books are needed and appreciated.  They are the lifeblood of our monthly book sales!  Donations may be dropped off when the library is open. Just bring them to the front desk or ask the staff for a cart (we try to leave an empty cart on the elevator.) Library hours are Monday - Thursday 11 am to 7 pm, Friday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 10 am - 2 pm.  If you have questions about donating books, the library's phone number is 517-456-4141.

Note:  Please do not leave donations outside the front door.  Wet or weather damaged books make us cry!

          Please do not put donations in the library drop box.  The library drop box is strictly for library book                  returns. 

  2.  Donations are limited to four (4) boxes or six (6) paper grocery bags per drop off.

Note: Banker or copy paper size boxes are recommended.  Please do not fill huge boxes that cannot be lifted by an average 70 year old woman.
