Donating Items to the LaGrange Library

We are once again accepting donations!  Please note our policy change.

Donated items may be dropped off on Wednesdays 9:30am-8pm and Saturdays 9:30am-2pm and are limited to a maximum of 25 items per family per day. 

Items must be in excellent condition.  Please refer to the Friends of LaGrange Library Donation Policy for information on what items qualify.  Your donations are tax deductible and receipts are available at the Circulation Desk upon request.  As a courtesy to our fellow tenants, please do not leave donations in the hallway as it creates a fire safety and tripping hazard.
