Book Donations

Donations of gently used Books, DVD’s, CD’s and LPs can now be accepted at your nearest Winnipeg Public Library Branch.

A few important things to know before you drop off your much appreciated donation:

  • Please no more than 3 “sturdy/liftable” small to medium size boxes (no bags please) dropped off at a time. (approx. 20 lbs. each)
  • Label the box “FRIENDS” so they will find their way to our dedicated book/materials sorting volunteers.
  • Thank you for only donating materials that are in saleable condition.
  • Sorry, but we cannot accept:
    • Textbooks
    • Professional books (accounting, law, medicine, etc.)
    • Encyclopedias, unless 1920’s or older
    • Computer, business and finance books older than 5 years
    • Magazines (exceptions for Anna, history, gourmet, décor, art and design)
    • VHS cassettes
  • Our Book Room volunteers may be able to assist with accepting larger donations or pick-ups. Please contact our Book Room Manager to get more information.

Thank you very much for your donations!
