The San Bruno Public Library and the Friends of the San Bruno Library are pleased to accept donations of usable items in very good condition, including books, CDs and DVDs. Donations are either given to the Friends to stock their sale area in the Library lobby, or they are added to the Library collection at the discretion of the Library staff.  We request that donations be limited to 20 bags or boxes per week.  We are happy to accept materials in very good condition with the exception of the following:


Computer manuals older than two years


Dirty, mildewed, or otherwise damaged materials

Encyclopedias or other dated reference materials

VHS tapes

Cassette tapes

Foreign language material other than Spanish

Please leave donations with staff at the Circulation Desk during regular Library hours.  While staff is not able to affix a value to donated materials for tax purposes, we are happy to issue a receipt upon request.  Staff reserves the right to refuse gifts upon which restrictions are placed.

If we are unable to accept your donation, you may contact our neighboring libraries or other local organizations for their donation policies.

If you are making a monetary donation, please contact us directly.
