Donating Books

At this time, the library cannot accept any donations of used books or other used materials. 

Please do not bring donations to any Humboldt County Public Library branch.

Why Does the Library Ask You Not to Bring Used Books Now?



Normally we love to get donations of used books, music, and dvds in good condition. They are accepted and sorted by volunteers from the Friends of the Library.

These volunteers (many in high-risk groups) are not at the library during the COVID outbreak.

Library staff on site are few - and working hard to bring you the essential online and curbside services you need most.

That means the library can't accept any donations of used materials just now.
If you would like to donate money specifically for buying new books, you are invited to give via the Humboldt Library Foundation's Buy-a-Book Campaign
