Donations of Books & other materials
We are not accepting donations of books & other materials at this time. Until we are able to conduct the larger monthly sales, we do not have enough storage space for additional donations.
Alternate places to donate books:
Bernie's Book Bank - Accepts new and gently used books for children which are then donated to students in the greater Chicagoland area.
Better World Books is an organization with a similar mission to the Friends but on a global scale. Click on the link to find drop boxes. A close one in the area is in Vernon Area Public Library's parking lot. They also accept DVDs, Music CDs, and Audiobooks.
Goodwill and Salvation Army stores also accept donations of books and other media.
Who are we?
The Friends and Foundation of Fremont Public Library District is the main fundraising body and a 501c3 organization. The Friends and Foundation believe that a good public library is vital to the intellectual, cultural and social growth of our community.
What do the Friends and Foundation do?
- We organize and maintain the “Book Nook,” offering for sale donated and library withdrawn books, movies, music, audiobooks, and more.
- We coordinate our popular book sales with donations of materials from our community. In regular times (non-COVID) we conduct a large book sale the second Saturday of each month from 10:00am-4:30pm, and Sunday from 1:00-4:30pm, on the second floor.
- We promote special fundraising events such as Trivia nights, T-shirt sales, etc. to help with specific fund campaigns.
- We facilitate all donations that come to the library, including those from the annual envelope campaign in the library's December/January newsletter.
Meetings occur the second Wednesday of each month at 1:00pm. Light refreshments are served beginning at 12:30pm. These meetings are suspended until further notice. To become a dues-paying member, fill out our Application Form and turn mail it to the library or hand it in to any service desk.
