What we Donʻt Accept:
Receipt: If you come during our posted hours, we will be able to provide you with a receipt. Donations to Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i are tax-deductible. Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization approved by Section 501 (c)(3) of the IRC.
All donations to FLH are used for the support and promotion of the Hawai‘i State Public Library System. Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i is primarily staffed by volunteers who sort and price donations.
Material that is not considered saleable or any excess is:
1. Donated to other non-profits,
2. Recycled if possible,
3. Or must be disposed of at a cost to FLH.
Please be aware of these additional costs which mean less support for the libraries. To avoid unnecessary sorting and expense, please only donate materials that fall under our accepted guidelines shown above. Mahalo for your support!
Book & Media Pick up - Donation Pickups are suspended in preparation for the 69th Annual Booksale. We will resume pickups the week of July 11th. Donations can be dropped off at our warehouse until June 9th. Or to the 69th Annual Booksale. Mahalo for your patience.
