Donate

We accept donations of gently-used books, CDs, vinyl records, DVDs, Blu-Rays and magazines in any quantity.

Your donations are what makes it possible for the Friends of the Library to provide support to the Memphis Public Libraries. Thanks to the effort of our volunteers and generosity of our members, we generate up to $400,000 a year in funds through Second Editions Bookstore, our semi-annual sales, and our Amazon.com storefront.

You can bring donations to any of the 16 branch libraries or to Second Editions Bookstore at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.

Large donations can be left at the loading dock in the rear of the Central Library (entrance on Walnut Grove). For exceptionally large donations (e.g. estate donations, libraries of 1000+ books) please contact us to coordinate.

So next time you’re tidying up, consider donating your gently-used books and media to support your local libraries. Your donation is tax-deductible and environmentally-friendly.
