Material Donations

Donations of Books, Materials, and Other Items

The Farmington Community Library is now accepting donations of books and materials.

Due to limited resources and COVID-19 safety measures, we are limiting donations to the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Donations will be accepted at the Twelve Mile location only until further notice. Drop off donations at the East side of the building at the 12 Mile location, not at the front doors or inside the building. We cannot accept donations that are brought into the building or outside these days and times.

Please do not donate books and items that are without covers, stained, mildewed or musty or with yellowed or brittle paper, recordings (vinyl records and cassette tapes), video cassettes, computer software, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, textbooks and workbooks over 5 years old, magazines, or law and medical collections.

Thank you for your generosity in donating books, other Library materials, and equipment to the Library. Such generosity is a major source of paperback books and an excellent source of titles not owned by the Library. Any material given to the Library may be added, and later removed, from the collection based on the Library’s Collection Development Guidelines. Those items which cannot be used will be sold in the Friends of the Library Book Sale, whose funds support the Library, or given to other non-profit or charitable organizations.

Gifts of artwork, personal property, equipment, real estate, and stocks may be accepted at the discretion of the Library Director if such terms or conditions are acceptable to the Library Board of Trustees.

Gifts of computer hardware are accepted at the discretion of the Coordinator of Technology, since the Library’s requirements change with technological development and enhancements. The Library staff may be able to suggest other organizations which will accept older hardware.

If you have any questions, or to obtain a donation receipt for tax purposes, please call the Library at (248) 553-0300 before dropping off your donation. Due to COVID-19 safety measures, we are not able to offer physical assistance at this time.
