Material Donations

The Library appreciates the special place that books and other materials have in our patrons' lives and their reluctance to discard them. Unfortunately, limitations of time and space make it impossible for us to accept all materials offered and materials will be screened before acceptance. Once accepted, donated materials become the property of the Riverside Public Library with the understanding that items that are not added to the collection may be given to the Friends of the Library for sale, given to other libraries or disposed of in a responsible manner. Please review our complete Material Donation Guidelines.
