Large Donations of Books

If you have a large donation of up to four boxes of books and/or media, and you do not want to insert them individually into our book drop slot, please bring your boxes when the Donation Room is open. It is open and staffed as follows:


If you are unable to come at those times, please drop your donation into the book drop slot (available 24 hours/day). Books should never be left outside on the walkway to the donation slot.


For types of materials that we accept and other info, see our main donations page. Due to limited resources, donations cannot be picked up.


Where to Donate Boxes of Materials

The Donation Room is located at the back of the library just behind the book drop slot. Park your car in the driveway behind the library next to the large roll-up door and knock on that door or call the Donation Room at 650-526-7031 to let us know you are there. We will help you unload your boxes and give you a receipt for tax purposes.


The driveway leading up to the book drop is on Mercy Street just to the left of the driveway that leads down into the underground parking garage. The library building is at 585 Franklin Street (Google map) in Mountain View.
