The Oceanside Public Library will happily take your donations of gently used books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes or even vinyl records! Even if we don’t need your donated items for our collection, the Friends of the Library will sell it online or at one of their book stores. The Friends raised nearly $90,000 for the library last year just by selling donated materials, so your donations count a great deal!
You can drop off materials at the Civic Center Library, the Mission Branch Library, or the Friends of the Library book sorting room, located at 602 Civic Center Drive. Note that if you have a lot of material that you’d like to donate, the Civic Center Library has a loading dock. If you require a receipt for tax purposes, we’ll be happy to issue you one.
