Donating Materials to Brighton Memorial Library
BML is accepting donations! If you are among the many who have cleaned out their bookshelves during the pandemic, now is the time to move them out of your house and give them to Friends of BML. You can bring in up to 5 boxes or bags per day (no more than 35 lbs each).
BML accepts in good condition:
Books for children, young adults & adults
Audiovisual materials (audiobooks, CDs or DVDs)
General Interest Magazines from the last 12 months (not news or current events magazines)
Textbooks (up to 5 years old)
BML cannot accept:**
Damp, musty, dirty, or damaged books- these items can be placed in your recycling bin.
Records, VHS or cassette tapes
**Items not in resale ready condition will be refused
Donations can be dropped off during regular library hours, however, we do ask that you try to avoid the last half hour before closing. Please give your donation to a staff member. Do not deposit them in our indoor or outdoor book drops.
Thank you for donating to Brighton Memorial Library and the Friends of BML!
The Friends of Brighton Memorial Library is a hardworking volunteer organization that supports and promotes the library. Donations are sorted and sold at the Friends book sales and in the Dorothy & Jack Pitlick Bookstore, as well as via Internet sales. Revenues generated are then given back to the library in the form of funding for new initiatives and for library programming. We couldn’t do what we do without our Friends!
