Donate Items:

The Apalachicola Margaret Key Public Library recognizes the value of donated books, audio books, DVD’s, video games, and other gently used tech/literary items. Some of these are cataloged in to our permanent collections, some defray the cost of purchasing books, and some are used for resale to generate funds for new books and programs. Remember that books and other materials should be in good shape with relatively recent publication or creation dates. Older books, and rare items or editions will be accepted for resale through our network of rare book retailers and collectors. We accept donations of books of all types and your donations are tax deductible.
