The Pima County Public Library depends on donations from the Friends to fund several programs and services.  Last fiscal year, 2015-2016, the Friends donated $220,000 to the Public Library.

There are two ways you can help with your donations:

1)  Books, CD's, Audio Books (both CD & Tape), DVD's, Blue Ray's and VHS (only Classic movies & Kids Disney)
          We do not take cassette tapes, unless Audio Book
          VHS tapes, only take Classic movies (1970 or older) or Kids Disney (No longer able to recycle)
          National Geographics get recycled and we get paid for the recycling (goes towards donations)

2)  Your tax-deductible cash gift.

Donations may be taken to the Book Barn (2230 N. Country Club Road) Monday through Saturday mornings (9:00am – Noon).  You can also take your book donations to your local library branch and let them know that it is a donation for the Friends.

If you need help bringing in a large donation (min 8 boxes and must be within 25 mins of our location, per google maps), just give us a call at
