Book Donations Needed at all Fort Bend County Libraries

By Betsy Winters, Publisher Macaroni Kid Katy September 11, 2021

The Friends of the Library (FOL) organizations that support Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) are accepting donations of gently-used books, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks so they can replenish their supplies and continue their book sales and fundraising efforts. Donations can be brought to any FBCL location, such as the Cinco Ranch location, during business hours.


Money raised by the Friends of the Library Book Sale has provided funding for special adult and children’s programs, cultural events, and staff development and continuing education programs for library employees.


In addition to books, DVDs, and CDs, donations of gently-used LPs, Blu-ray discs, and puzzles are also welcome.


Items that cannot be accepted include cassettes, VHS tapes, encyclopedias, legal statutes, case books, National Geographic and some magazines, or books that are damp, moldy, dirty, or insect-ridden.

 Even better, donations and contributions to the Friends are tax-deductible!
