Library Welcoming Book Donations

As families clean out the old to make room for the new, donations are being accepted at the Uintah County Library. “A lot of people think about donating books and movies to the Library this time of year,” shares Library Director Sam Passey. In the spirit of keeping those interested informed, the Library has created a list of guidelines for those who consider donating. The Library is always welcoming recent best sellers, “Classics” in good condition, and recently released movies and television series on DVD or Blu-Ray. The Library is also always on the hunt for local history materials from Uintah County such as maps, business and family histories, and photos of buildings or people. If you have more than one box of items you’re bringing in, please call the Library first. Items in boxes or shopping bags can be brought to the side of the checkout desk. Finally, please do not donate books in poor condition, textbooks older than 2 years, dated information, magazines (except for cooking and crafting) and VHS tapes. Call 789-6263 with questions or for more information.
