Thank you for considering Scott County Library for your donation. We use donations to enhance services, programs, and our collection. 

What We Accept

  • Physical materials in good condition, including gently used books, CDs, and DVDs. We do not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, or magazines. 
  • Monetary donations for collection purchases or funding programs

*While we make every effort to honor the requested use of every gift, we cannot promise that donated funds will be used exactly as requested and ultimately it is up to Scott County staff to decide the use of donated funds. 

We cannot accept donations of technology equipment due to information security and equipment vetting policies defined by Scott County Information Technology.

How To Donate

First, please contact your library to speak with the branch manager. If you're donating physical materials, calling ahead helps us ensure we have room for your donations when you bring them. Our donation form is also helpful.
