Donating Books

Donations are being accepted at Orlando Public Library. Donations may be accepted at branch locations depending on the space available.

If you have a small number of items totaling no more than three boxes or bags that can be safely lifted by one person, you may drop off your donation during regular library hours. Quantities outside of this guideline will not be accepted.

We generally pass donations along to the Friends of the Library. The Friends sell the items in their bookstore on the third floor of Orlando Public Library and in our branches, and generously donate the proceeds back to the library to support programs and services.

Most books and A/V items are welcomed as gifts, however there are some items the library cannot accept as a donation. Learn more.
