Springfield library asking for donations to expand collection

Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Library Center in Springfield is accepting donations of books, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and more to include in the Friends of the Library’s next book sale, tentatively scheduled for a date in September.

Anyone can drop off a donation from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. through July 18, 2020 at the edge of the library’s parking lot.

The drop-off stations are designed to be safe for volunteers, library staff and donors.

Friends of The Library President Bill Kastler says the proceeds of the FOL book sales help fund programs and features that make what the library has to offer even better.

“There’s a lot of things that enhance the library offering that they couldn’t otherwise perhaps afford,” said Kastler.

Each donation will be quarantined for 72 hours before being handled by anyone.
