Donate Gently-Used Books

We can accept donations of used books and other materials at any of our KCPL locations. Though we cannot appraise the value of your donation, we will provide a receipt. Please refrain from donating textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, or VHS tapes.

Title Adoption Program

Commemorate a person, group, occasion, or milestone by adding a title to the library’s collection for $25—the average cost of a hardback book. We will purchase specific titles, authors, or subjects as requested. Book plates can be placed in most materials to identify your gift.

Additional information and application available for download.
