Material Donations

You can help the Library by donating books and music that are recent and in good condition. Items less than 5 bags/boxes may be dropped off in the Library vestibule during regular hours of operation. Donations of 5 bags/boxes or more can be dropped off only by appointment through the Facilities Department. To set up an appointment, call: 248-869-7209 or 248-869-7219.

Do not place donations in the drive-up return slots - these are for library materials ONLY.

We are unable to accept older materials or items in poor condition, including things that are mildewed, musty, stained, torn, missing pages or damaged in other ways.

We do not accept:

  • DVDs/Blu-rays
  • Magazines
  • Textbooks 
  • Encyclopedias
  • VHS tapes
  • Cassette tapes
  • Readers Digests

For more information, please call the Library.

All donated items become the property of the Library and cannot be returned to the donor. Whenever possible, we add these materials to the Library's collections. Items not needed by the Library may be given to the Friends of the Library for their use.
