Donation Guidelines

The Bastrop Public Library welcomes your donated items, such as books, DVD's, audiobooks, and CD's. Materials will be added to the collection or sold in the Friends of the Library Book Nook. All proceeds from Book Nook sales come directly back to our library and fund our programs!


The library accepts:

• Books (new or in very good condition)

• Audiobooks • Music CD's

• DVD's and Blu-rays • Cake pans

The library does not accept:

• Damaged/moldy/musty books

• Encyclopedias

Material Consideration for Collection:  
Materials (books/DVD's/audiobooks) must be in pristine condition to be considered for the collection.

Damaged/moldy materials will be immediately disposed of.


If desired, a receipt for your donation can be obtained at the circulation desk. The library staff isn’t able to determine the value of your donation, but we will list the number of items donated. It is your responsibility to determine the value of the donation for tax purposes.   

*Donations are only accepted during the library’s regular business hours.*

Thank you for your support!
