How do I make a donation?

COVID-19 update

For health and safety reasons, we are not accepting donated materials at this time. Learn more about our services during COVID-19.

Burnaby Public Library accepts donations of books and other library materials.

Donations are accepted in person at the information desk of your local Burnaby Public Library branch. We accept only items in excellent condition (no loose bindings, marked pages or water damage) and of current interest. Due to space limitations, we can accept a maximum of two shopping bags (up to 20 lbs) of donations at one time. We don't add donated material to our collections, but the funds generated from the sale of these materials are used to enhance BPL collections and services.

Once received, donated materials are the exclusive property of Burnaby Public Library.
