Frequently Asked Questions Donations



Donating Books

Currituck County Libraries appreciate donations of books, audiobooks, and DVDs in great condition. You may bring your donations to any branch during normal business hours.

 Please note:

  • We do not accept donations of textbooks, encyclopedias, newspapers, or magazines.
  • Please call beforehand if you have a large quantity of items to donate. Due to space and storage limitations, we are not always able to accept donations.
  • Please refrain from leaving donations outside the library after hours.
  • Donations not added to our circulating collection are sold in our ongoing Friends of the Library Used Book Sale, the proceeds of which help to fund library programming.


Donating Money

The library also appreciates monetary donations. Donations made to the Currituck County Public Library Foundation are fully tax deductible. Donors may designate a specific library for which they would like the funds to be used, but the Foundation respectfully asks that the manner in which the funds are expended be left up to the Foundation Board, the County Librarian, and the Branch Manager, if appropriate.


Commemorative Giving

Commemorative giving is an ideal way to honor a loved one and also provide meaningful support to the Currituck County Public Libraries. Money can be donated to the library for the purchase of honor or memorial books by bringing in or mailing a check to the Library. Please indicate the name of the person for whom the book(s) will be purchased and if you have a preference as to type of book or subject matter. In either case, a bookplate will be added and the family or honoree notified of the gift.


You may also donate a new book to the library in honor of or in memory of an individual. Please inform the staff of the name of the person so a plate can be added to the front of the book.


If you are interested in making a commemorative gift, contact the library. The Memorial & Honor Book Donation Form is attached below.
