Book Sale Donations

Donation items in good condition may be brought to the Library during business hours. Donations may be brought to the circulation desk. If you have a larger amount of items, stop in or call the circulation desk (701-355-1480) to notify staff, and someone will assist you with unloading your donation at the loading dock on the west side of the building. Help make the heavy lifting easier for Library staff and volunteers by packing donations in boxes of manageable size - nothing heavier than 25 pounds, and a maximum of 5 boxes at a time. Thank you!
