The money generated will be used to purchase books and equipment for the library and fund children and adult programs and community events - thank you for your assistance.



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 olde books are chosen and stored for our big book sales on July and December

- Some books go to our shelves outside the Coffee & Chocolate Shop in the Litchfield Exchange

WHY  YOU SHOULD

 DONATE USED BOOKS TO FOWL

 

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 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.
