Book Donation Policy

Book Donations
The Lineberger Memorial Library no longer accepts donations of books and other materials from personal libraries. Increasingly, the library team finds fewer books among donations that can be added to the library collection. 

The library is grateful for the generosity of past donors. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of local and national organizations that may be able to help you find new homes for your books:
