DONATE BOOKS! The Memorial Library greatly appreciates gently loved books that you would be proud to give away to support our book sales events. Drop offs will be accepted between Memorial Day and July 4th and again between Labor Day and Columbus Day. We will accept donations at the Rec Hall on the mornings of the book sale. We also have an ongoing book sale in the library.
In some cases your donations can be added to the Library's collection; the remainder will be sold at the two summer book sales that provide income for Library programs. Your contributions of gently loved books that you would be proud to give away are always greatly appreciated.
Check Carefully Before Donating:
We regret we are unable to accept the following items, which cannot be added to the Library collection, and will not sell at book sales:
Cook Books; Encyclopedias; Readers Digest Condensed Books; Text Books; Computer Books (they are usually outdated); Business magazines; National Geographic magazines; Travel Guides over 5 years old; Tapes.
Check for mold on books stored in a basement (musty odor common to damp basements). Mildewed, dirty, or moldy books and any books more than 8 years old also cannot be accepted for our book sale.
Ways to Give to the Ocean Park Memorial Library
NEW! The library has an Amazon.com account and you can now purchase books for the library from the library's wish list. Books are posted as they are added to the wish list so they do not appear in categories. The Amazon web site will walk you, the gift buyer, through the process, but you will need to add the Librry's address to your Amazon address book, so that the book(s) you choose will be shipped directly to the Library.
VOLUNTEER! We invite you to consider joining our library committee, assist with our book sales, or the librarian can always use an extra hand to complete a project.
GIVE! We have a donation jar that is available in the library and many visitors and residents drop money in when they visit. Also, patrons donate above and beyond their membership dues/fee to keep our library strong and to show their appreciation and love of the library.
