The Bryan + College Station Public Library accepts cash donations and donated items (books, audiobooks, magazines, videos). If you have a question that is not answered below, please give us a call or fill out a message on our contact page.
Cash donations may be made in honor or memory of an individual and are typically used to purchase books. Fill out a donation form to list the person and occasion, and you may specify a subject area for the books to be purchased with your donated funds. If you would like to donate cash for another purpose or have questions, please contact Library System Director Larry Koeninger at (979) 209-5611 or the Carnegie Librarian Nan Ross at (979) 209-5634.
Cash donations for eBooks may be made using the eBook form. If you would like for us to purchase a specific title, please list it on the form. Unfortunately, not all titles are available for us to purchase as eBooks. If the title you request is not available, you will be contacted for an alternative title.
Books, magazines, audiobooks, and videos are accepted at the Mounce Library in Bryan and the Ringer Library in College Station. Donations may be added to the libraries’ collections, placed in a Friends of the Library book sale, or placed on the free shelf. Donations should be in good condition.
If you would like to donate an item in memory of someone, please contact Library System Director Larry Koeninger at (979) 209-5611. We do not charge for placing a bookplate in a donated book, but the item must fit with our collection development policy in order to be accepted.
If you are interested in donating anything to the Carnegie History Center, please speak with Carnegie Librarian Nan Ross at (979) 209-5634 to determine whether the Carnegie would be interested in the item.
