Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Book Donations


Bring items to be donated to the Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library (1855 Park Avenue, Costa Mesa) during hours the library is open, preferably when the bookstore is also open.

Because of limited storage, please consult library staff or Friends store volunteers before bringing a large donation.

Donations are tax-deductible.  Ask for a receipt when you donate items.

Please only donate gently used, clean books, tapes, CDs, DVDs - we cannot accept moldy, mildewed or damaged items or items missing parts.

We cannot accept magazines, condensed books, encyclopedias, computer books more than 3 years old, or textbooks.

The library may elect to add donated books to their collection. Typically, only new, recently published books are added. Sometimes an older book in good condition may be added to replace a damaged item.
