NOTE: We cannot accept Encyclopedias, Magazines, or Text Books.
- Some libraries are accepting donations; some are not. Feel free to call your local branch to see if they are accepting at this time. If your branch is not accepting, follow the next steps.
- If you wish to drop off a box of books, you may do so behind our book store at the Sunnyside Branch (Kings Canyon & Clovis). Leave the boxes on the concrete pad at the back door of the library, not in front of the library. Please call 559-492-6657 and leave a message to let us know that there are books to be taken inside by our book store staff.
- If you have multiple boxes of books, please fill out this form and we will contact you as soon as we can to make arrangements.

We can also arrange for pick-ups of larger quantities, (over 10 boxes). span style="background-color: #ecb602;">For all donations, we request that individuals call our donation line, 559-492-6657, to determine what the best options are. Then call again when the drop-off has been made, so a volunteer can be dispatched to pick-up and take them to our storage facility.
FOL BRANCHES: If any branch would like books for their on-going sales, the FOL Book Shop at Sunnyside will be more than happy to give what you need to stock your shelves. Branches are able to pick and choose from anything on the shelves.
Thank you for your continued support.

Your library came up when I googled places that accept French books. I have quite a number of them, having been a doctoral student in French at UC Berkeley. We’re getting old (I just turned 79), and although I hate getting rid of the books, I’m probably done! Please let me know if you can use them. I know there are French doctoral stuents who could, but I don’t know how to locate them.
Hi Babara, We are the Friends of the Fresno County Public Library. If you are looking to place the books into library circulation, please contact the Library at https://fresnolibrary.org. If you are looking to donate the books to the Friends for our fund-raising sales, please use the donation form at https://www.fresnofol.org/#book-donations. Thanks!
