Mid-Continent Public Library is happy to accept donations of the following new or gently-used materials:

  • hardback books
  • paperback books
  • DVDs
  • CDs

Donated materials are accepted at all locations.


Many donated materials are not added to the library collection but instead are sold via online retailers. Revenue from the sale of surplus library material is returned to the library's material funds, assuring that the library can continue to purchase more new materials. As a political subdivision of the state of Missouri, all charitable donations are tax deductible.  MCPL cannot place a value on the items.
