Reuse and recycle

Library staff will assess donated books and allocate them to the most appropriate library. Any books which we can’t use on our shelves across the County’s libraries will be sold at one of our books sales or recycled, which also helps your libraries. 

To donate, just bring your books along to your local library - we would love to see you!
