All Proceeds Benefit Our Library!

The Friends of the Morgan Hill Library (FMHL) welcomes good quality donations, which our all-volunteer team offers at amazingly low prices. Donation receipts are available for accepted items. If the bookstore is closed, please leave donations with the front desk. Our limited space allows us to accept no more than four (4) boxes or six (6) bags at a time.

We gladly accept:
  • Books — all types, including CD audiobooks
  • Good condition, "special" nonfiction and fiction — "old and rare", first editions, out-of-print collectibles
  • Usable textbooks and reference books
  • Music CDs — all genres
  • Blu-ray discs and DVDs for all ages; VHS movies for children only
  • Complete jigsaw puzzles in original box

Some materials do not sell. We do not accept:
  • Books in poor condition — moldy, dirty, damaged, incomplete, heavily annotated or highlighted
  • Outdated books (check if no longer current and 5+ yrs old) — textbooks, computer/technology references, almanacs, travel guides, etc.
  • Encyclopedias or Reader's Digest condensed books
  • Cassette tapes, including music or audiobooks
  • Magazines (share through the free magazine library bin)
  • Board games
We encourage recycling books that cannot be used by the Friends. Note that books with paper covers may be placed in home recycling bins.
