If you’d rather donate in-person, you can do so at any of our libraries. We’ll be sure to take down your information and a tax receipt will be sent to you by mail.
We graciously accept donations of books and materials at South Shore Public Libraries with the exception of textbooks, magazines, newspapers, and encyclopedias.Items in our collection get a lot of love, so donated items need to be in excellent condition! However, we are unable to use some items. To learn more about donating books, please call 902-543-2548.
Materials we cannot use may be sent to our partner Better World Books (BWB). We receive money from BWB and use that to purchase more new books. BWB uses a portion of their net proceeds to support literacy initiatives and libraries internationally.
