Donations Needed

We need your help with our next book sale which begins on Sept 26th. We are always looking for donations and especially now.

We are not receiving as many books as in the past. So, if you are still looking for a tax deduction for 2019 or if you just want to clear out some space on your bookshelves, now is a good time to do so. We accept donations at any time, but we need them at least one week before the book sale and preferably earlier than that.

We need donations of books in good condition, either hardback or paperback including children’s books, DVD’s, CD’s, records, audio books, puzzles and games, computer software, and magazines. You may leave your donations outside the door of the Friends room or with the library staff. If you need help with a large donation, bring it on Tuesday morning when we usually have volunteers on hand to help you. If you are unable to bring in your donation please call the Dunwoody Library at 770-512-4640 and we may be able to arrange a pick-up.

Remember, donations are tax deductible with receipts available at the circulation desk. All funds raised through the book sales are used to support the Dunwoody Library.

Thank your support.

The Friends of the Dunwoody Library donated five (5) boxes of HB Books to the VA hospital in Atlanta today. A VFW Post 10822 member delivered them and while there a Vet walked up and said " That's where the books come from, its boring when you lay in the bed and can find nothing but old magazines to read, Thank you."
