Guidelines for book donations to Reese Unity District Library


Current books will be evaluated to determine if they should be added to the library’s collection.  If they do not meet our selection criteria, they will be placed in the used book sale. 


Books intended for the book sale:  Please help our staff by donating only materials that are in good saleable condition.

  • Outdated informational books (e.g. technological, tax, investment, medical, educational, legal, etc.)
  • Books that have been kept in storage and musty/mildewed, torn, stained, or damaged in any way.  
  • Outdated textbooks (more than five years old)
  • Encyclopedias that are more than ten years old
