Friends of the Durham Library Book Sale

Donated books ready for the semi-annual book sale.

Help support Durham County Library by donating your gently used books to the Friends of the Durham Library.

The Friends welcome donations of books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. (Encyclopedias, magazines, cassettes and condensed books are not accepted.) You may take your donation to any Durham County Library location during regular hours. If you would like to donate a large amount of books (more than one bag or box), please bring them to the Main Library garage on Tuesday morning between 9 a.m. and 12 noon, when the Friends of the Durham Library are present and can help unload. The garage is on the far right side, closest to Holloway Street, as you face the Main Library from the parking lot.

If you cannot bring your large donation to the Main Library on Tuesday morning, please come first to the Main Library circulation desk and let them know you have a large donation. The security guard will open the garage doors so that you can unload your donation straight into the garage.

If you have a question, or wish to make arrangements with the Friends for a special donation, please contact the Staff Liaison to the Friends, Dionne Greenlee, at 919-560-0190 or
