Our used book sale room and special event book sale fundraisers are important fundraising efforts.

We welcome donations of new and used books, CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks. Donations may be dropped off at the library all through the year. Donations may be tax-deductible. We provide donation receipts.

Donations can be dropped off during our open hours or left in boxes/bags on the back porch of the library (leave a note with an email address if you require a donation receipt). Please call (503-436-1391) or email our office and let us know when you leave a donation.

The library cannot accept the following types of book donations:

  • Encyclopedias
  • Textbooks
  • Manuals (Computer, etc.)
  • Outdated Magazines (1 year or older)

The library asks for books that are in good condition. Please do not donate books with:

  • An obvious “musty” odor (this often indicates mold)
  • Cracked, torn, or yellowed pages
  • Water damage

We occasionally accept complete puzzles and games – please call ahead to ask.  

Thank you for your generous support!

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.

Closed Captioning
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our website’s video content includes automated captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.

Volume Controls
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
