Green Tree Public Library accepts donations of gently-used books and other materials on the first Saturday of every month between the hours of 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  On these Book Donation Drop-Off Days, Friends of the Library volunteers will be on hand to help receive and sort through the used items. Please bring donations in small boxes or bags that can be easily carried. Collecting and organizing these materials takes a great deal of time and effort; therefore the library is unable to accept donations at times other than the designated Book Donation Drop-Off Days.

What kinds of donations does the library accept?  To keep standards high for library patrons, the library accepts books and multimedia items that are in good condition. Cookbooks, works of fiction (especially mysteries) and nonfiction (especially historical), paperbacks, children’s books, CDs and DVDs are greatly appreciated.

What kinds of donations is the library unable to acceptAlthough we appreciate the support, the library cannot accept reference books (such as encyclopedia sets), Readers Digest condensed books, textbooks older than five years, computer books older than two years, dated publications (such as tax guides), magazines and self-recorded videos. Also, the library cannot accept materials in poor condition including: materials with torn pages or excessively worn covers; materials with yellowed, brittle pages or damaged binding; dirty or dusty items; stained, water damaged or mildewed items; materials with excessive notes or highlighting; or scratched or worn media.

What does the library do with donations?  The majority of donated items are sold at the Friends of the Library Annual Used Book Sale, which takes place every autumn. The Friends generously donate the book sale proceeds back to the library to fund programming, materials and special projects. Materials unsold at the book sale are distributed to local charities and organizations.  All donations become the property of the Friends of the Green Tree Public Library.  Because of limitations of space, money and staff, the library does reserve the right to accept and discard, at its discretion, any donated materials. Donated materials cannot be returned to the donor.

May I receive proof of my donation for tax purposes? Yes. Upon request, a receipt may be obtained at the time of donation. However, by law, library staff cannot determine the value of a donation for IRS purposes.

lib_book_bunch1 10:00 AM  -  2:00 PM Book Donation Drop Off Day Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Green Tree Public Library accepts donations of gently-used books and other materials on the first Saturday of every month between the hours of 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  On these Book Donation Drop-Off Days, Friends of the Library volunteers will be on hand to help receive and sort through the used items. Please bring donations in small boxes or bags that can be easily carried. Collecting and organizing these materials takes a great deal of time and effort; therefore the library is unable to accept donations at times other than the designated Book Donation Drop-Off Days.

What kinds of donations does the library accept?  To keep standards high for library patrons, the library accepts books and multimedia items that are in good condition. Cookbooks, works of fiction (especially mysteries) and nonfiction (especially historical), paperbacks, children’s books, CDs and DVDs are greatly appreciated.

What kinds of donations is the library unable to acceptAlthough we appreciate the support, the library cannot accept reference books (such as encyclopedia sets), Readers Digest condensed books, textbooks older than five years, computer books older than two years, dated publications (such as tax guides), magazines and self-recorded videos. Also, the library cannot accept materials in poor condition including: materials with torn pages or excessively worn covers; materials with yellowed, brittle pages or damaged binding; dirty or dusty items; stained, water damaged or mildewed items; materials with excessive notes or highlighting; or scratched or worn media.

What does the library do with donations?  The majority of donated items are sold at the Friends of the Library Annual Used Book Sale, which takes place every autumn. The Friends generously donate the book sale proceeds back to the library to fund programming, materials and special projects. Materials unsold at the book sale are distributed to local charities and organizations.  All donations become the property of the Friends of the Green Tree Public Library.  Because of limitations of space, money and staff, the library does reserve the right to accept and discard, at its discretion, any donated materials. Donated materials cannot be returned to the donor.

May I receive proof of my donation for tax purposes? Yes. Upon request, a receipt may be obtained at the time of donation. However, by law, library staff cannot determine the value of a donation for IRS purposes.

While driving around Green Tree, you may have noticed Global Links, our new neighbor on Trumbull Drive. During this presentation, you'll be introduced to the non-profit, its mission and the importance of its work. Global Links is a medical relief and development organization dedicated to improving health in resource-poor communities while promoting environmental stewardship in the US healthcare community.  Due to regulations and other reasons, hospitals throw out tons and tons of high-quality surplus medical supplies and equipment.  Global Links collects these useful items and redirects them to public healthcare institutions, primarily in Latin America and the Caribbean, and local free clinics and other community partners right here in Pittsburgh.  Global Links provides a socially and environmentally beneficial alternative to sending about 290 tons of still-useful materials to local landfills each year. Since 1989, Global Links has delivered over $200 million in critical medical aid through our collaborative, capacity-building programs.  In addition our unique Suture Donation Program recovers life-saving sutures to help patients worldwide.

This event is free and open to adults. Registration is required.

lib_book_bunch1 10:00 AM  -  2:00 PM Book Donation Drop Off Day Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Green Tree Public Library accepts donations of gently-used books and other materials on the first Saturday of every month between the hours of 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  On these Book Donation Drop-Off Days, Friends of the Library volunteers will be on hand to help receive and sort through the used items. Please bring donations in small boxes or bags that can be easily carried. Collecting and organizing these materials takes a great deal of time and effort; therefore the library is unable to accept donations at times other than the designated Book Donation Drop-Off Days.

What kinds of donations does the library accept?  To keep standards high for library patrons, the library accepts books and multimedia items that are in good condition. Cookbooks, works of fiction (especially mysteries) and nonfiction (especially historical), paperbacks, children’s books, CDs and DVDs are greatly appreciated.

What kinds of donations is the library unable to acceptAlthough we appreciate the support, the library cannot accept reference books (such as encyclopedia sets), Readers Digest condensed books, textbooks older than five years, computer books older than two years, dated publications (such as tax guides), magazines and self-recorded videos. Also, the library cannot accept materials in poor condition including: materials with torn pages or excessively worn covers; materials with yellowed, brittle pages or damaged binding; dirty or dusty items; stained, water damaged or mildewed items; materials with excessive notes or highlighting; or scratched or worn media.

What does the library do with donations?  The majority of donated items are sold at the Friends of the Library Annual Used Book Sale, which takes place every autumn. The Friends generously donate the book sale proceeds back to the library to fund programming, materials and special projects. Materials unsold at the book sale are distributed to local charities and organizations.  All donations become the property of the Friends of the Green Tree Public Library.  Because of limitations of space, money and staff, the library does reserve the right to accept and discard, at its discretion, any donated materials. Donated materials cannot be returned to the donor.

May I receive proof of my donation for tax purposes? Yes. Upon request, a receipt may be obtained at the time of donation. However, by law, library staff cannot determine the value of a donation for IRS purposes.
