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
