Donate Books, AV and Magazines


The Friends of the Waukegan Public Library accept donations of gently used books, magazines less than 6 months old, CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes.    These donations are sold by the Friends in the Used Book Sale area of the library on the main floor.  The money earned through these sales is used to fund various library programming and events such as the concert series.  Book and audio/visual donations can be left at the drop off box in the Used Book Sale area on the main floor of the library.  You may request a receipt but it will not contain an estimate of the value of your donation.
