If you want to donate, call to verify the best time and manner of bring by the donation. We typically limit donations to one bag or box at a time. You can bring your bag or box inside and we’ll take it from there!
What can I donate?
We accept all kinds of materials: hardbacks, paperbacks, magazines, DVDs, CDs. However, we do not accept encyclopedias, condensed books, or National Geographic magazines.
We also accept McKay’s receipt donations! Save your McKay’s receipts and donate them to help raise money for our new library!
What happens to my donations?
After our volunteer has sorted your donation, we will:
add items to our collection
give items to the Friends of the Coquille Pubic Library to sell to raise funds for our new library
add items to our book or magazine exchange to share with the rest of the community
All donations are greatly appreciated and are used for the benefit of our community! For more information, read our Donation Policies.
There are several ways we can support the Friends of the Library. Periodically, the Friends will host community events or book sales, which will be announced on our Events page. Attending those events is one way to be more involved with the community and the library.
Additionally, the Friends of the Library has opened a bookstore in downtown Coquille! You can browse donated items available for purchase, and the funds will go towards the construction of our new library building! Learn more about the Friends of the Library Bookstore HERE.
Donations are another way to support both the Library and the Friends!
A final option is to connect your Amazon Prime account to the Friends Amazon Smile charity organization. If you’ve never heard of Amazon Smile before, learn more about the program here. Here are the steps to add the Friends as your preferred charity organization:
Instead of going to Amazon.com to do your shopping, go to Smile.Amazon.com. Follow the prompts from the “Get Started” link.
When it prompts you to select the charity you’d like to support, search for “Friends of the Coquille Library Foundation Inc” (shown in image below)
Hit “Select” and you’re now set up to support the Friends any time you shop on Amazon! It doesn’t cost you anything extra and you help raise funds for our Friends!
