About Book Donations
The Jewish Public Library accepts a limited number of book donations. Due to space restrictions, we ask for you to call in advance to verify that we are able to accommodate the donation. Donated books are generally sold in our ongoing used book sale. Proceeds go toward the purchase of new books.
Donations are only accepted during library opening hours.
For more information, please call (514) 345-2627 ext. 3003
What you need to know:
Donated items must meet the following criteria:
- Material must be in very good condition
- Only books, CDs and DVDs will be accepted.
- Any other material, including magazines, videocassettes, audiocassettes, computer books, textbooks and encyclopaedias will not be accepted by staff.
- Religious works that are intended for burial should not brought to the library, but directly to a Jewish cemetery such as the Baron de Hirsch Cemetery, 5015 De La Savane St, Montreal
If your materials don’t meet these criteria please consider donating them to other non-profit organizations.
