  • Hardback and paperback books

  • CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks

These materials may be dropped off at Hawthorne Library or Wiseburn Library during normal library hours. Friends of the Libraries finds new readers for your donated items and uses the proceeds to sponsor initiatives at both libraries.
