Books and Materials

UPDATE: In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, donations of books and other materials are not being accepted at this time.

The Library accepts gently used books and materials in good condition.

Most items are sold in book sales that support the Library. In rare cases, the Collections Services staff will choose to add donated items to the collection.

To be sure we can accept your donated items, please make sure they do not have the following damages:

  • Loose, frayed or broken bindings
  • Yellow, brittle pages
  • Soiled covers and pages
  • Missing pages and illustrations
  • Heavily marked pages
  • Books containing inaccurate or out-of-date information

Please contact your local Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh location to find out when and where you can drop off books and other materials.

Thank you for supporting your Library!
