Material Donations

Are you going to re-read that bestseller? Do you want to watch that movie again? If you answered no to these questions, you may want to donate them to the Library. Even if you are moving (or just looking to downsize your collection), please consider us as your charity of choice!

We are happy to receive donations of popular books, CDs, or DVDs in good condition. The best of the donated material is added to our collection and the Friends of the Sylvan Lake Library sells the rest to raise money for library materials and programming. Just drop your quality used books, CDs, or DVDs off at the circulation desk and let a staff member know you are donating them.

Before you bring your donation to the Library please read the following donation tips to ensure your donation meets the Library’s guidelines.

  • Is the item in excellent condition? Or gently used?
  • Is the item clean and odour-free?
  • Is it current?

When in doubt, give only what you would consider as good quality for your own use.

As a guideline the items listed below are not generally acceptable:

  • Textbooks/Encyclopedias
  • Reader’s Digest
  • Magazines
  • VHS tapes, LPs, audio cassettes, or computer software
  • Burned or sample CDs or DVDs
  • Material that is over 5 years old
  • Materials that are dusty, damp, mouldy, or in otherwise poor condition

Thank you for your donation!
