Book Donations
The Friends accept donations of gently used books. We do not accept CDs, textbooks, magazines, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest condensed books, or any book in poor condition (moldy, musty, falling apart, etc.). Book donations should be brought to the Bigelow Library during their normal operating hours. Please do not leave book donations in the book drop.

Set your AmazonSmile charity to the Friends of Bigelow Free Public Library. If you shop on Amazon, a percentage of every eligible order will be donated to us at no extra cost to you. It’s simple to select us as your charity of choice and every little bit helps!
