General Donations
The Poudre River Friends of the Library, on behalf of the Library District, accept donations of used books and items at any time. Donations of up to one bag or box per person per day are accepted at the information desks at any of the three libraries. Please bring donations that exceed this amount to the Webster House Administration Center at 301 E. Olive Street. Look for the garage door on the west side, in the back of the building, facing Mathews Street. Donations for the Friends may be left at this door. Look for the signs.

Donated materials are reviewed for possible addition to the library collection. Those not selected for the library are given to the Friends for potential use in their book sales. All donations are accepted on a 'no strings attached' basis and become the property of the library or the Friends of the Library.

Receipts for donations are available at the circulation desks at the three libraries.
