    What is the best way to make a somewhat large donation of books to Rochambeau Library?

    I’ll probably have about 6 records sized boxes full of a variety of books we’ve had to cull out from our personal household collection.

    I know it book SALE time of year, but we’ve been meaning to do this for a while.

    Thank you, Jessie

    Apologies if you haven’t been contacted yet about this question, but for large donations please contact us by email at
    Best time to bring in those boxes will be after November 5th. The Friends Accept donations all year. Bring in a bag or two or box or two and leave them in the bins outside the elevator on the ground floor of the library. You can get a receipt for the books at the circulation desk on the first floor of the library. Thank you for helping raise funds for the Library.
