Do you take donations?

Yes! We are happy to receive materials that are in clean, like-new condition. The items are checked for their usefulness to the library. Any items not usable by the library are passed to the bookstore. We cannot guarantee that donations will be used in the library. Items donated become the property of the Garden Ridge Public Library and are subject to discard and disposal as the Library sees fit. Receipts will be provided to the donor upon request. Due to Internal Revenue Service regulations, the Library is prohibited from providing an estimate of the monetary value of the donation.

Please DO NOT donate items that are dirty, stained, moldy, water-damaged or infested with insects. Double-check your boxes and bags for personal items before donating. We’re sorry but we cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest condensed books, magazine, VHS tapes or books on cassette tapes.
