The Friends of Granby Public Library (FOGPL) will accept donations June 14 through July 17. 

Drop off locations starting on June 14 will be at these convenient places: Granby Public Library, Farmington Valley YMCA, and Geissler’s supermarket in Granby during normal business hours. Please do not leave books outside the library or businesses. We can also accept donations at Holcomb Farm only on Monday evenings, 6 to 7 p.m., from June 14 to July 12.

This year, for its 38th annual Used Book Sale, FOGPL will gladly accept gently used items in good condition, including books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, games, toys, LP records, newer (2005-2020) textbooks, and other book-related items. Please try to use boxes that are not too heavy with the books. Items not accepted: VCR or cassette tapes, old computer software, “condensed” books, magazines, encyclopedias, sets of common books such as Time-Life series and items with any kind of odor (smoke, mold, or musty smell).

We are also happy to accept sturdy boxes with lids, especially the paper copy boxes, which will be put to good use when sorting and storing all the items to prepare for the sale that will be held Sept. 24 – 26 at Holcomb Farm.

We encourage students to volunteer for community service credit by helping with sorting on Monday nights. If you need assistance for someone to come to your home and pick up items for the sale, contact us at Friends.  For more information, visit and go to the FOGPL page.
