Donate Books:

The Apalachicola Public Library recognizes the value of donated books, Audios and DVDs: some for our permanent collections, some to defray the cost of purchasing books, and some for resale to generate funds for new books and programs. Remember books and other materials should be in good shape with relatively recent publication dates.  Older Books and rare 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.
