Donate books and other media!

A donation box is available in the lower level of the library. Receipts can be requested at the Reference Desk. The book sales rely on your generous donations, but please note that we cannot accept items with missing covers, pages falling out, chewed corners or items that are dirty, musty smelling or have scratched discs, missing parts, etc.  Due to storage constraints, we can no longer accept VHS tapes, audio-books on cassette, or vinyl records. If you have a question about your donation, please contact 715-831-5301 or friendsofthelibrary@eauclaire.lib.wi.us.

Each year nearly 100 volunteers donate almost 1,500 hours of their time to help make the book sales successful. Volunteer opportunities are available year round.
