Donations Policy


Gifts are always appreciated and, in fact, monetary donations are essential to the library’s ability to function. Gifts-in-kind are gratefully accepted, subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees. Please contact the Library Director at 908-766-0118.

Book Donations

We appreciate book donations, but ask your cooperation in bringing the books into the building during open hours. Please do not leave bags of books outside – donations cannot be accepted without review by staff.

We can accept new and recent hardcover books, paperbacks in good condition, children’s books, CDs, DVDs and audio books. Due to limited storage space, however, we cannot accept old hardcover books, textbooks, or Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, or magazines.

Please Note: There can be no possibility of mold or none of the donations can be accepted. If your books were stored in a dark, damp area for 24 hours or more or have a stale smell, we cannot accept them as mold spores travel through the air and could infect the rest of the collection.
