No More Book Donations till December


Friends of the East Providence Public Library announce that they will not be accepting book donations again until December 1. Books are not accepted beginning the week before the book sale, from October 2, to allow volunteers time to prepare for the sale and to process remaining books. The Fall Book Sale is scheduled for Oct. 12 to 15 at Weaver Library. Proceeds from the sale will benefit library programs, including museum passes, special concerts and events.

If you are gathering books to donate, keep them at your home until December and be sure that they meet the requirements. The Friends do not accept encyclopedias, spiral bound books or books in 3-ring binders. Hardcover and softcover books should be in gently used and resalable condition. Books should have bindings intact and be free of writing, highlighting, tears, water stains or mold or mildew, which could be dangerous for volunteer book sorters with allergies. If your books do not meet the requirements for library donation, consider recycling them. Soft cover books can go in the recycling bin. Hardcover books can go in the recycling bin if you take the covers off.
