...for thinking of the library when it comes to donating your books and media in good to excellent condition.
Your donations provide us with many books for the library’s collection. A Library staff person carefully examines all donated items and selects those that fill gaps in our collection. Any books that we choose to add to the collections must also meet our regular selections criteria as outlined in our Materials Selection Policy.
Any items the library can't use get passed along to the Teton County Library Friends. The Friends sort through these items and may add them to the Friends Book Nook in the library lobby or share them with other local and regional organizations.
The Friends try to get as many books as possible into as many hands as possible for as little money as possible.
