We have an ongoing used book sale in the back of the library.

Donating Items to our library

Donated items can end up: on our shelves as a library item, sent to another library that could better use that item, donated to the Wayne County Jail System libraries to give prisoners something constructive to do, or into our ongoing booksale in the back of our Magazine & Study Room. As you can see, your donations can help a wide variety of people and institutions, not just Melvindale Library, and we really THANK YOU for them!

However, we will NOT accept: old newspapers, school/college textbooks of any kind or anything that is wet, bug-ridden, oily, smelly or moldy. If you need a tax reciept, just ask at the front desk when dropping off your items.

Please do NOT leave donations outside the library!
