How to Donate Books

  Book Sale Donations ~Printable Flyer

The Book Sales are fundraisers held twice per year in April and November. To make them a success, your donations are needed and can be accepted throughout the year.  Small quantities may be left at the library circulation desk at the Cape Coral Library located at 921 SW 39th Terrace. Tell them it’s for the book sale. Please don’t leave donations in the book drop, since staff may not know they are donations. For larger quantities you can arrange for a pickup by leaving a message on the Friends hotline at (239) 349-2572.

(Donations of CD’s and DVD’s are also accepted.)
