Becket and Washington's Community Library

The Becket Athenaeum

Book Donation Policy
Every July, we host a book sale in conjunction with the Becket Washington Town Fair (aka Hilltown Brouhaha) on our lawn. For that purpose
 we accept donations of books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs.


All donations need to be in good condition and relatively current. No Encyclopedias or other dated books (e.g. Consumer Reports Best of 2010). We prefer hardcover books but will also accept the best quality paperbacks.


Donations are accepted during our regular operating hours. All donations are reviewed by a staff member upon delivery to decide what we can accept. Those that we cannot accept will remain in your care. We suggest donating those items to Goodwill.
