Donations of Books, Tapes, or Other Items


Are you interested in donating books, compact discs, or other items from your home 
or office, but are not sure of the process?  The following may answer some of your 

What materials are accepted?

Donations of books, videocassettes, compact discs, records, sheet music, computer software, cassette tapes (spoken books or music), framed art prints, and puzzles 
that are clean and in good condition are accepted.

What materials are not accepted?

 We do not accept books that are musty, mildewed, damaged, or otherwise 

Where do donations go?

Morley Library decides the disposition of all gifts.  Usually, the donations are given 
to the Friends of Morley Library for their books sales.  Proceeds from these sales 
enable the F.o.M.L. to sponsor projects and activities not covered by the library's 
operating budget.  On rare occasions, donations are added to the collection.  
These are usually books of special or local interest.

Are these donations tax deductible?

Yes.  Contributions for Morley Library or the Friends of Morley Library are tax 
deductible.  A receipt is available upon request.  Just ask a Library Staff Member 
or the F.o.M.L. for one.

If an itemized list of your donation(s) is required for tax purposes, please prepare 
the list before bringing your donation to the library.

Where can donations be left?

All donations, small or large, are welcome.   Materials can be dropped off at:

Morley Library
184 Phelps Street
Painesville, OH 44077

Due to budgetary restrictions, we are unable to pick up donated books.
