CUTPL to Temporarily Stop Accepting Book and DVD Donations

Culverites have been very generous in donating their books to the CUTPL and we are most grateful to each of you! We review every gift and decide whether we will add it to our collection or give it to our Friends of the Library group, which then sells the items. The funds they raise are given to the Library, and we rely on our Friends to finance several programs for us, including the High School Book Club and our Celebrated Voices series.

At this time we have a fortunate challenge at the Library: we have received a large number of book and DVD donations from members of the community. However, due to our current space and staff constraints, and the large number of donated items we have to process, we will not be accepting any more donations until sometime after the new year. We’ll let you know as soon as we are again ready to receive your most generous donations!

Thank you!
