Gently Used Book Donations
The library accepts donations of books, CDs, DVDs, and other items for possible inclusion in the collection. We do not accept text books, encyclopedia sets, or items that are moldy, musty or in disrepair. We also cannot guarantee that donated items will be added to the collection, nor can we give a fair market value to donated items. Any books or other items that do not become part of the library’s collection may be included in the library’s ongoing book sale. The money raised goes back into the library to buy more materials for the collection. Please read our Item Donations Policy before donating items to the library.
Memorial Book Program
The Memorial Book Program offers you an opportunity to donate funds for the purchase a book to be added to the library’s collection in memory of or to honor friends or relatives. You may specify a subject area or the library’s staff will select a book in an area in need of new materials. Your gift book will bear a bookplate naming the donor and the person memorialized. Letters of acknowledgment and appreciation will be sent to both the donor and the family of the person who is being honored.
Print and complete a Memorial Book Request Form and return it to the library or pick up a form at the Circulation Desk.

Your support of the library allows us to continue providing services and resources to the residents of Peters Township and beyond. Each day, hundreds of individuals walk through the library’s doors – everyone from local college students, business owners, the unemployed, families, retirees, immigrants and more.

Libraries support literacy and education, gather and provide access to information, support the democratic process, enhance quality of life and build community.
