Q. Do you accept donations of old textbooks?

I have nursing textbooks from 2006-2010 that I don't want to throw in the trash. I'm wondering if you accept those for your library or book sales? And can they be dropped at any branch?


We do not take textbooks to add to our collection. However, if you would like to bring them to the Friends of the Library book store, they could take a look at them and decide if they will take them.

Here is the information on the Friends of the Library hours, phone number and weblink:

The Main Library "Friends of the Library" Bookstore is located on the first floor. Look to your left after you enter the first set of double doors. The Main Library is located at 915 Monroe Street in downtown Huntsville.
