Donate Your Time



Donate Your Books

We accept donations of gently used books, audiobooks on CD, video DVDs, music CDs, vinyl records, puzzles, and games, throughout the year. 

When:   Until further notice, book donations are accepted only on Thursdays, from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. (or, if earlier, when capacity is reached).  


The next book donation day is

Thursday, October 29th.  

Where:  Donors are asked to bring their materials directly to the grey brick shed located immediately next to the Book Donation Center, in the Upper Parking Lot of the Westport Library, 20 Jesup Road.

How:  Donations are "contact-less".  Please deposit your materials directly into the plastic bins inside the grey brick shed or, if your donations are in boxes, stack the boxes inside the shed, on the floor beside the bins. Donated materials will be quarantined in the shed for three days before being handled by book sale volunteers or employees.   

For your protection, when at the shed, please observe social distancing, and wear a mask.

In order to limit exposure of our book sale volunteers and employees, we are not scheduling book pick-ups at this time. 

Please, do not leave book donations on the ground outside the Book Donation Center or the shed. Unfortunately, any materials left outside will be recycled, not resold, due to exposure to the elements and an inability to segregate and quarantine.
