Book Donations

Please do not leave book donations outside of the library or in the lobby or book drop.


The Big Rapids Community Library takes new and gently used book donations all year.


Items we do not use in our collection will be placed in our ongoing monthly book sale on the first Saturday of the month, the Friends of the Library Book Sale, or the AAUW books sale. 


Please bring your donations to the circulation desk when the library is open.


We ask that you please not leave books outside the doors to the building or in the lobby. 


We offer receipts for the items donated, on request.

You can check out the Library's Amazon Wish-list here and purchase books for the library directly.


Items we DO NOT TAKE: 

Mildewed, dirty,  or damaged items are not accepted.  Magazines, textbooks, old encyclopedias or copied pages of books in binders. These types of items can be taken to Mecosta County Recycle.
