The library can only accept donations in the weeks preceding our book sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Topsfield Town Library. Book Sales take place once in the fall and once in June, during the week of the Strawberry Festival.

The library can only accept donations in good condition. We cannot accept books that are ripped, stained, moldy/mildewed, missing pages, or heavily highlighted.

Please note: The library does not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, or audio cassettes.
