The Friends of the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library will accept books, CDs, and DVDs in good condition to sell at our book sales.

Please pack donations so they lay flat in a sturdy box or paper bag, or place loose individual items on the donation cart near the Circulation Desk. Donations are accepted during library hours. Do not leave donations outside the library when the library is closed! 

Please call ahead (978-468-5577) if you have a large donation that is more than 1 box or 2 paper bags.

We do not accept...

  • Textbooks.
  • Encyclopedias, magazines, or Reader's Digest condensed books.
  • Cassette tapes, records, puzzles, games, or toys.
  • Musty, moldy, or damp items. These items endanger our library and your home. THROW THEM AWAY!
