Donate Books and Materials

The Manhattan Library Association accepts the donation of gently used books and audiovisual materials. Please bring your donations to the check out desk on the first floor.

All donations in good condition will either be sold at the annual book sale, which takes place the last weekend in February, or at Rosie’s Corner Used Book Store on the first floor of the library.

There is no limit to the number of items you may donate. However, for large deliveries of more than 4 or 5 boxes, it’s best to make prior arrangements by contacting library staff at (785) 776-4741 ext. 200.

Please donate:

  • Books
    • Hardbacks
    • Paperbacks
    • Children’s books
  • Audiobook CDs
  • DVDs
  • Music CDs
  • Video games

We can't accept:

  • Magazines
  • Textbooks
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed Books
  • Computer books
  • Encyclopedias
  • Tax books from previous tax seasons
  • eBooks
  • Books in poor condition, including moldy, soiled, damp, or odorous items

Thank you for your support!

Your donations to the Manhattan Library Association fund all of the special programs at the library including summer reading, storytime, and technology training. We couldn’t do it without your help!
