Lake County Library Donations: Guidelines for Donating Books and other Materials

Thank you for supporting the Lake County Library through your donations.
The library accepts donations of usable books, DVDs and CDs for both adults and children.
To donate materials, drop them off at the library during regular hours.
Due to space limitations we cannot accept more than TWO boxes or bags at one time. 

The library cannot use magazines (including National Geographic); catalogs; Reader's Digest Condensed Books; textbooks; encyclopedias; dictionaries; moldy items; water-damaged items;  dirty, dusty items; items with torn or missing pages.

To recycle materials that cannot be donated to the library, contact Lake County Waste Solutions, 230 Soda Bay Road, Lakeport, 707-234-6400 or 1-888-718-4888.
