Donate used books and other materials 

The library is usually happy to take donations of items in good, usable condition. Sometimes we keep items for our library collection, but most items are given to the Friends of the Library for our used book sales. If you have a large number of items to donate, please contact us at 715-476-2366; sometimes we must decline large donations due to a lack of storage space. 

We love hardcovers, paperbacks, children’s books, DVDs, CDs, and board games and puzzles if they are in good condition with all their pieces. We we can only accept workbooks like crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and coloring books if they are in new, unused condition.

We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, and condensed books. We also cannot accept any items that are moldy or have insect damage due to the risk of spreading those problems to other books at the library or in our book sale.
