Where Do Donations Go?

We have a streamlined process that follows these steps:

- Volunteers give some books to the library staff to go through for shelving needs

- Volunteers then select the newer books for sale in our Friends Center

- Slightly older books are chosen and stored for our big book sale in the sumer

- Some books go to our shelves  in the Litchfield Exchange




We appreciate the strong community support for donating used books and other media. Reusing and recycling books within the Waccamaw Neck keeps books in the hands of readers and out of landfills. And it’s a great way to clean out your bookshelves making room for new editions! FOWL volunteers will sort the donations and ready them for use as replenishment to our ongoing book sale shelves or in an upcoming big book sale. If the donation is a newer book that the Waccamaw Neck Branch Library doesn’t have on its shelves, we will gift it to them.
