Donate Books and Materials (New and Used)

The Friends of West Florida Public Libraries collects books all year long for their semi-annual book sales. The sales help fund the children’s Summer Reading Club and other special events at WFPL. Contributions may also be used to purchase books, materials, equipment and furniture for the Library.

Small donations (one bag or less) may be dropped off at any WFPL location.

Large donations (more than one bag) should be made at the Friends' sort facility, 325 E. Commerce St., Pensacola, Fl 32507. The Friends are there every Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon except on holidays. Ring the front doorbell and they will come out to get your books.

For more information on donating to WFPL, contact Linda Williams at 850-450-2469 or visit http://friendsofwfpl.org/donate/.
